avoid session-scoped fixtures

Closed Bengfort requested to merge rm-session-scoped-fixtures into main

In !2089 (merged) I had some issues with session-scoped fixtures. So I wanted to check how much of a performance gain we get from them and if it is worth the additional complexity.

I started with groups and study_groups because they were relatively easy to do. The result (averaged over 10 runs):

  • session-scoped: 32.793 s
  • not session-scoped: 38.470 s

So the not-session-scoped version takes 17 % longer. IMHO that is enough to justify the complexity.
