Contribute and support¶
- Do not be afraid to contribute with small and apparently insignificant improvements like correction to typos. Every change counts.
- Read carefully the License of PyCryptodome. By submitting your code, you acknowledge that you accept to release it according to the BSD 2-clause license.
- You must disclaim which parts of your code in your contribution were partially copied or derived from an existing source. Ensure that the original is licensed in a way compatible to the BSD 2-clause license.
- You can propose changes in any way you find most convenient. However, the preferred approach is to:
- Provide tests (in
Crypto.SelfTest) along with code. If you fix a bug add a test that fails in the current version and passes with your change.
- If your change breaks backward compatibility, highlight it and include a justification.
- Ensure that your code complies to PEP8 and PEP257.
- If you add or modify a public interface, make sure the relevant type stubs remain up to date.
- Ensure that your code does not use constructs or includes modules not present in Python 2.6.
- Add a short summary of the change to the file
- Add your name to the list of contributors in the file
