Dave, Jim,

Would you want this need mentioned on either Test & Code or Python Bytes podcast?

I don’t have bandwidth to help out, but perhaps some listeners do. But I don’t want to mention if you’d rather I didn’t.

The maintenance burden is very light, and releases are handled through Travis CI. I’ve already had some excellent help from Jim Brännlund (BeyondEvil), and have added him as a developer to a few of these. I’d appreciate any additional help from the community to support these plugins, and if you’re aware of somebody who would like to contribute please point them in my direction.

> https://github.com/pytest-dev/pytest-repeat - I don’t really maintain this one currently, but feel that it’s worth mentioning because I was one of the early contributors
