Me neither, but I don't think that is the case... Companies subscribe to
tidelift, and pytest happens to be one of the projects on the platform. We
the maintainers own the project and may unsubscribe from the platform at

You are right. Fortunately those were very quick to do in my experience
with pytest-mock. I believe the same amount of work would be required by
pytest, even if it is a much larger project.

Other than that, any other opinions Florian? :)
