[svlug] Meaning of a phrase

I saw the phrase "delinting" used in a description in a changelog. 
Obviously it has to do with cleaning up the code because it says it "can
now pass -Wall."  Where does "lint" come from?  (I seem to recall the
word glint somewhere.)  Does delinting mean just cleaning up the code?
