[pytest-dev] Testing pytest releases using devpi and CI servers

Hi guys,

Recently we discussed how one could test pytest release packages using
devpi in multiple machines, before the release is made official.

I created a small repository[1] which only contains appveyor and travis
scripts which simply use "devpi test" to test and publish results for the
pytest 2.8.5 release[2] in Travis and AppVeyor.

IMO this greatly facilitates the process and ensures the package is being
tested in clean machine to boot.

I'm thinking, if pytest core developers like this idea, to make the
repository more general (so any core developer can use it to test devpi
packages) and make it the recommended way to test release packages before
publishing them to PyPI.

The repository is just a proof of concept to see what others think, so
opinions are welcome!
