Those sorts of py.test conventions really resonate for the corporate/product types :) Also, small note, I'd probably update the Projects page link to the Mozilla Github so the code is more readily showcased. Otherwise, the Projects page is fantastic :)

I happily accept PRs listing projects.  Please add your own project contexts as
that would be interesting for others as well i guess :)

As far as testing non-python codebases goes, these two integrate C/C++:


Many are using pytest to test command line scripts (which are not neccessarily
written in Python) and pytest itself has many tests written against it this way.  
Didn't get around to release a "pytest-cli" plugin i have started somewhere.
