First of all, thank you for your interest in contributing to OverPy!

Filing bug reports

Bug reports are very welcome. Please fill them on the GitHub issue tracker. Good bug reports come with extensive descriptions of the error and how to reproduce it.


All patches to OverPy should be submitted in the form of pull requests to the main OverPy repository, DinoTools/python-overpy. These pull requests should satisfy the following properties:


  • The pull request should focus on one particular improvement to OverPy.
  • Create different pull requests for unrelated features or bugfixes.
  • Python code should follow PEP 8, especially in the “do what code around you does” sense.


When introducing new functionality, please remember to write documentation.


It is recommended to add tests for new code you add.


Finally, pull requests must be reviewed before merging. Everyone can perform reviews; this is a very valuable way to contribute, and is highly encouraged.
