If you are reporting a bug, please include:

  • Any details about your local setup that might be helpful in troubleshooting.
  • Detailed steps to reproduce the bug.

Fix bugs

Check out the open bugs - anything tagged with the [easy-pick] label could be a good choice for newcomers.

Implement features

Look through the GitHub issues for features. Anything tagged with [enhancement] is open to whoever wants to implement it.

Write documentation

Watson could always use more documentation, whether as part of the official docs, in docstrings, or even on the Web in blog posts, articles, and such.

Submit feedback

Any issue with the [question] label is open for feedback, so feel free to share your thoughts with us!

The best way to send feedback is to fill a new issue on GitHub.

If you are proposing a feature:

  • Explain how you envision it working. Try to be as detailed as you can.
  • Try to keep the scope as narrow as possible. This will help make it easier to implement.
  • Feel free to include any code you might already have, even if it’s just a rough idea. This is a volunteer-driven project, and contributions are welcome :)
