We happily welcome anyone interested in contributing to this project, be it with new ideas, suggestions, by filing bug reports or contributing code to our GitHub repository.

  • If you already have some code changes, you can submit them directly as a pull request.
  • If you are wondering where we would greatly appreciate your efforts, check out the help wanted tag in the issues list and initiate a discussion there.
  • If you start working on a feature in the code, let us know by opening an issue or a draft pull request. This helps all of us to keep an overview on what is being done and helps to avoid a situation where we are doing the same work twice in parallel.
  • We encourage you to use the PEP 8 coding style.

For all code contributions we follow the four eyes principle (two person principle), i.e. all suggested code including our own are reviewed by a second person before they are incoporated into our repository.

If you are unfamiliar with pull requests, the GitHub help pages have a nice guide.
