How Can I Contribute?

Reporting Bugs and Suggesting Enhancements

The easiest is creating an issue. You can do that for ideas or problems.

For bugs, if possible, try to construct a small code example that exhibits the problem. Include version numbers (Python, pySerial, pySerial-asyncio).

Pull Requests

Code / test / documentation contributions are of course welcome!

Consider that this is a project that aims to run on many platforms and architectures and therefore needs implementations covering all of them, of course there are exceptions and starting on one platform is better than starting on none.

When providing new features, also think of documentation and tests if possible.
