It is neither feature complete nor API stable!
That said, please have a look and try to use it for your applications.
Feedback and contributions are welcome!

If you have found a bug in Regions please report it by creating a new issue on the Regions GitHub issue tracker.
Please include an example that demonstrates the issue that will allow the developers to reproduce and fix the problem. You may also be asked to 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.
Astropy Regions uses a package of utilities called astropy-helpers during building and
installation. If you have any build or installation issue mentioning
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 Regions issue tracker.
Like the Astropy project, Regions 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.
