[pytest-dev] transfer repo / pypi access / ML announce

I am a bit concerned that people who transfer repos to pytest-dev think that it receives magic maintenance because this relevant section in the docs 


is not very explicit about it, even says "sharing some of the maintenance responsibility".  I suggest we explicitely say that maintainers are generally expected to continue maintaining their plugins.

And how about having a "pytest-dev" user which has release rights on pypi for all pytest-dev plugins?  The credentials could be shared in a file in our public repo, encrypted to known GPG public keys. Speaking of which, we could collect gpg keys of contributors in another file.

lastly, if we had a pure pytest-announce mailing list we could announce new pytest-dev plugins (from time to time) and releases there. We can certainly get that list on python.org.
