[pytest-dev] RFC: pytest sprint indiegogo page (draft)

looks great! As has been suggested before including the download numbers
and maybe also a list of projects/companies that are using pytest? Also
maybe someone has some good quotes by "Python gurus" praising pytest.
The company where I work has agreed to make a contribution, so as soon as
the page is ready I'll forward it.
Is there anything I can help with? I'm not a great pytest expert but I do
use it A LOT for testing, I wrote a small plugin (pytest-datafiles) and I
will brush up on the code and internals until June :-)
