Hi all,

Currently, pytest-xdist in load-balancing ("-n4") does not support
grouping of tests or influencing how tests are distributed to nodes.
Bruno Oliveira did a PR that satisfies his company's particular requirements,
in that GUI tests must run after all others and pinned to a particular note.

My question is what needs do you have wrt to test distribution with xdist?
I'd like to collect and write down some user stories before we design
options/mechanisms and then possibly get to implement them.  Your input
is much appreciated.

best and thanks,
