Contribute and support¶
Do not be afraid to contribute with small and apparently insignificant improvements like correction to typos. Every change counts.
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.
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.
