Thanks for the interest in joining the pytest-dev organization!

About 1, that's great, it is one of the main purposes of why the pytest-dev
organization was created for.
About 2, unfortunately in practice the maintenance will still fall under
your shoulders. pytest-dev developers can eventually help with questions,
but overall maintenance is still expected to be done by the original
developer(s). If you are having trouble finding time to maintain the
plugin, I suggest to start looking for co-maintainers. A good way to do
that is to promote frequent contributors you trust to maintainers.

Other than that, I see your repository has everything required except for a
``tox.ini`` file to facilitate contribution, which is one of our
requirements[1]. Do you think that could be added?

So, having mentioned the point about maintenance and the tox.ini file, I
think pytest-memesis would be a great addition to pytest-dev IMHO.



If you are interested - what are the next steps?
