For unittesting OpenStack uses testtools, unittest. Why not pytest?

Hi, I have seen that OpenStack follows testtools framework for unit testing. However, writing test cases using pytest is easy and reduces the amount of code to be written by providing some good features. Why OpenStack doesn't use pytest? Is there any specific reason for that?

Thanks, Veena

I'm sure there are lots of specific reasons, one may be that things started this way and were carried on by history :) Unless you see specific technical issues that cannot be accomplished with the current framework I'd say that this is a matter of personal preferences.
