hi, i am one of the pytest maintainer, and i noted https://github.com/astropy/pytest-doctestplus - im wondering if there is interest in consolidating this with the core pytest doctest plugin as a exteral primary doctest plugin for pytest

Cadair Hey @ronnypfannschmidt this channel doesn't get a lot of use these days, but I will let the maintainer know.
Cadair Would the idea be to move the core plugin out and merge them?

yes, currently i'm not aware of a pytest core maintainer deeply using doctest or caring about it, so its just being dragged along, having a motivated external would be better for the plugin
also whats the main communication channel atm?

Cadair There is either slack or matrix for IM
Cadair They are bridged together so take your pick

i see, i might have to pick up matrix again (i drooped it since i had annoying issues with my own irc bridge)

Cadair The maintainer of the pytest plugins is on the us east coast, so he won't be online for a while
Cadair I have not tried to run my own irc bridge yet. I just use the matrix.org one. It's got much better recently.

Cadair There is a lot going on in matrix land at the moment. The first version of the server to server spec was released and there is a complete redesign of riot web underway

dan i'm definitely interested in having that discussion. we've hit upon a few potential features recently that would really only be possible if we were able to access the core doctest plugin. it also seems like our plugin has features that would be useful to a broader community
dan the main concern is that i don't think that the astropy community can afford to be the primary maintainer of the pytest doctest plugin
