Getting Help with Astropy

We make every effort to keep the documentation readable and up-to-date, so it is often the first place to go for help. But we also provide other resources if you are having trouble using Astropy.

Astropy's mailing lists and chat

The best way to get help is usually by asking questions of the Astropy user and development community.

Report Issues

If you encounter something you beleive to be a mistake, error, or bug, the best way to get it addressed is to report it on the github issue tracker. If you aren't sure if something is a bug or not, feel free to ask on the mailing lists. If you believe you know how to fix the problem, you can also use github to issue pull requests to correct them (see the section on contributing code for more information).
