I recently published a flake8 plugin on GitHub:
In my experience, finding flake8 plugins is easier said than done and the best are found on the 'PyCQA' org on GitHub/GitLab. Would this project be something that the organization would be interested in moving under their umbrella? I'm thinking of making use of it in some OpenStack projects, but who knows...
So, we generally try to take on projects that are already widely used and benefit from the a larger group's attention. If you'd really like the project to live in the PyCQA, we can accomodate that. The rest of us are already overloaded with commitments so we'd need a commitment from you that you are going to maintain this. We can create a team for you and make you team maintainer so you can add more people to the team as more contributors come along.
If your project is more geared towards OpenStack, you might instead want to include it in the OpenStack project namespace as a non-Big-Tent project. Hacking lives there and OpenStack is happy having it there. (Hint: I also work on hacking, although not as much as I've wanted to as of late.) They also hate "third-party" dependencies and will probably be happier (if it's geared towards them) if you would maintain it there.
Also, it looks as if you didn't closely follow the Flake8 documentation around building a Flake8 extension (http://flake8.pycqa.org/en/latest/plugin-development/registering-plugins.htm...) which points out that you should add the "Framework :: Flake8" classifier for extensions to make it easier to find things. I haven't had time to update the discoverable Flake8 projects to use this universally but number of the more popular ones are using it.
