We are happy if you want to contribute. Please raise an issue explaining what is missing or if you find a bug. We will also gladly accept pull requests against our master branch for new features or bug fixes.


If you want to contribute please follow these steps:

  • Fork the esa_cci_sm repository to your account
  • Clone the repository, make sure you use git clone --recursive to also get the test data repository.
  • make a new feature branch from the esa_cci_sm master branch
  • Add your feature
  • Please include tests for your contributions in one of the test directories. We use py.test so a simple function called test_my_feature is enough
