I was working with source kit and I was very surprised to find out that static is a “source.lang.swift.syntaxtype.keyword”. Is this necessary? From the surface it looks like it ended up a keyword by accident. https://github.com/apple/swift/commit/571c9b3c5ef995e280b494c751804b385b49e7b9
I was working on swiftlint rule https://github.com/realm/SwiftLint/pull/1501 but static is getting hard to parse with sourcekit (even on 4.1)
- Can static be reported as an attribute even though it is implemented as a keyword? Or does this change require changing the parse/compiler?
- Can contextual keywords be reported as their actual context and not their intrinsic kind?
For example: class is a keyword, but sometimes it is used as a modifier. Can it be reported as a modifier when it is functioning as a modifier?
