Hi all,

pytest-capturelog has been abandoned [1] but is still getting used a lot
as far as i see.  As it basically helps dealing with capturing logging 
and logging is part of the python standard lib i think we could see
to merge it into pytest and maintain it from there.  Is anyone up
for trying to do this along the lines of pytest-cache? 

FWIW I expect less breakage with pytest-capturelog because there is
no change like there was with the execnet->json move while merging.
It should be a relatively straightforward task.

Alternatively we could see to get maintainership from pypi admins
but i think in this case it's not worth it.
