[pytest-dev] Releases

I also think we should release 2.8 directly.

There are a couple of issues/PRs that should go into 2.8, IMO:

- Merge pytest-cache into core (
https://github.com/pytest-dev/pytest/pull/828); I think Ronny is working on
- Release pytest-xdist 1.13, so we can merge "non-zero exit code if no
tests are collected" (https://github.com/pytest-dev/pytest/pull/817); I
think Ronny is about to release 1.13;

Actually, merge all PRs that are pending would be a good target, as they
all seem like good additions to a new major release.

I think Holger also said before that he would like to vendor pluggy into
pytest before releasing 2.8 thought. Is there anything here that we can do
to help?

How should we proceed? Perhaps it would be good to set a ballpark date for
2.8, say two/three weeks from now? This will be probably enough time to dig
into the issue tracker for critical bugs and to round up the remaining PRs.
