I would like to transfer two pytest plugins (MIT) that I wrote and maintain to pytest-dev organization.

My main goals being:
- assure their long term maintenance
- adopt similar testing methods
- improve cross plugin testing (also to implement pre-release testing to avoid post-release conflicts)
- improve discoverability of the plugins


I think that the projects already pass the requirements from https://docs.pytest.org/en/stable/contributing.html#submitting-plugins-to-pytest-dev -- because they were creating with shared ownership from start.

I may note that the list of requirements is a little bit outdated, but I think nobody bothered with minor details like replacing README.txt with README.(txt|md|rst), or mentioning that required metadata can be better stored in setup.cfg instead of setup.py, which can even be missing (at least in theory).

Both plugins are very simple and they do not have any special runtime/testing requirements. They will both use github-actions (the second one is tested with zuul-ci now, but I can switch it very easy).
