Reporting Issues and Contributing

Reporting Issues

If you have found a bug in Regions please report it by creating a new issue on the Regions GitHub issue tracker. That requires creating a free Github account if you do not have one.

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.


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.

Regions 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):

Getting Help

Besides GitHub, you can get help from the community in a number of ways. There is also a slack channel for Regions hosted under the main Astropy slack.
