I noticed that there now also is a pytest-logging release from Pedro Algarvio:
which adds to the confusion around logging and pytest, unfortunately.
I haven't used pytest-catchlog myself yet but intend to do so.

and see how we can all arrive in a situation which is less confusing
to users, somewhat independently from the question of merging catchlog
