Reporting Issues

If you have found a bug in Astroimtools please report it by creating a new issue on the Astroimtools GitHub issue tracker.

Please include an example that demonstrates the issue that will allow the developers to reproduce and fix the problem. You may be asked to also provide information about your operating system and a full Python stack trace. The developers will walk you through obtaining a stack trace if it is necessary.

Astroimtools uses a package of utilities called astropy-helpers during building and installation. If you have any build or installation issue mentioning the astropy_helpers or ah_bootstrap modules please send a report to the astropy-helpers issue tracker. If you are unsure, then it’s fine to report to the main Astroimtools issue tracker.


Like the Astropy project, Astroimtools is made both by and for its users. We accept contributions at all levels, spanning the gamut from fixing a typo in the documentation to developing a major new feature. We welcome contributors who will abide by the Python Software Foundation Code of Conduct.

Astroimtools follows the same workflow and coding guidelines as Astropy. The following pages will help you get started with contributing fixes, code, or documentation (no git or GitHub experience necessary):
