#352 Claiming a package: pytest-cov


The pytest-cov package looks really abandoned, latest commit is almost two year olds. No one is responding to issues and pull requests on the repository.

I've already tried to contact the author via Mail (memedough@gmail.com, from his commits), but the Mail Account doesn't exist anymore.

    And it would make sense to claim the cov-core as well. Same author and base library for pytest-cov.

    Plus there are nose-cov and nose2-cov. I don't want to maintain these two, but if you add me as maintainer, I will actively search for someone who is willing to take these over.

    I'm attempting to contact the current owner.

    OK, I've added you as owner to the four projects pytest-cov, nose-cov, nose2-cov and cov-core.

    I have a request to pass on from Holger Krekel, which is to please subscribe to https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/pytest-dev/ and let people there know you're taking over the packages.
