i'm happy to announce the release of pytest-external-blockers 
it was created in order to be able to semantically track for what reasons a
test was skipped
a normal `pytest.skip` doesn't offer a semantic difference between "skipped
for a local reason" and "skipped for a external reason"
so we choose to pick a new verb.
that way every dynamic "skip" that happens for a external reason (like
database down, known to be broken tests, unavailable network service) can
In future i want to extend this concept to xfail.
I'm hoping for some harsh critique :)
