Contributing issues

To contribute issues use the GitHub issue tracker. Should only be used for one of the following:

  • To report bugs.

  • To request new features. Make sure you first discussed the request on the Inno Setup newsgroups (web-based interface available)!

Please do not use the issue tracker for anything else. Questions should be posted on the newsgroups (web-based interface available) and not on the issue tracker!

Contributing new code, translations or documentation updates

To contribute new code, translations or documentation updates to Inno Setup clone your own fork instead of cloning the main Inno Setup repository, commit your work on topic branches and make pull requests. In detail:

  1. Fork the project.

  2. Clone your fork (git clone<your-username>/issrc.git).

  3. Add an upstream remote (git remote add upstream

  4. Get the latest changes from upstream (e.g. git pull upstream master).

  5. Create a new topic branch to contain your feature, change, or fix (git checkout -b <topic-branch-name>).

  6. Make sure that your changes adhere to the current coding conventions used throughout the project - indentation, accurate comments, etc.

    Do not make mass whitespace, copyright date or $jrsoftware$ tag changes to files. The only time is it ok to make such changes is when you already needed to change the file to implement your feature, change, or fix.

  7. Commit your changes to your topic branch.

  8. Push your topic branch up to your fork (git push origin <topic-branch-name>).

  9. Open a Pull Request with a clear title and description. Please include your name and email address if you are contributing a translation.

  10. Bask in the eternal glory of being an Inno Setup contributor :)
