well you can with a pre-commit hook + a job chagne to enforce it.
so pre-commit hook runs an autopep8 tox env.
if the tox run modifies any files fail the commit.
in the gate we also assert the same thing in the pep8 job.
and retrun the diff in the logs somewhere
anyway i know not everyone would be on board with that but its what i would proably do if i was starting proejct from
