Submit Pull Requests against the
Provide a good description of what you’re doing and why.
Provide tests that cover your changes and try to run the tests locally first.
Example. Assuming you set up GitHub account, forked wheel repository from https://github.com/pypa/wheel to your own page via web interface, and your fork is located at https://github.com/yourname/wheel
$ git clone email@example.com:pypa/wheel.git $ cd wheel # ... $ git diff $ git add <modified> ... $ git status $ git commit
You may reference relevant issues in commit messages (like #1259) to make GitHub link issues and commits together, and with phrase like “fixes #1259” you can even close relevant issues automatically. Now push the changes to your fork:
$ git push firstname.lastname@example.org:yourname/wheel.git
Open Pull Requests page at https://github.com/yourname/wheel/pulls and click “New pull request”. That’s it.
All pull requests and merges to
main branch are tested in GitHub Actions
based on the workflows in the
The only way to trigger the test suite to run again for a pull request is to submit another change to the pull branch.
Running Tests Locally¶
To run the tests via tox against all matching interpreters:
To run the tests via tox against a specific environment:
$ tox -e py35
Alternatively, you can run the tests via pytest using your default interpreter:
$ pip install -e .[test] # Installs the test dependencies $ pytest # Runs the tests with the current interpreter
The above pip install command will replace the current interpreter’s installed wheel package with the development package being tested. If you use this workflow, it is recommended to run it under a virtualenv.
The wheel project welcomes help in the following ways:
Making Pull Requests for code, tests, or docs.
Commenting on open issues and pull requests.
Helping to answer questions on the mailing list.
To make a new release:
**UNRELEASED**with a release version and date, like
src/wheel/__init__.pywith the same version number as above (without the date of course).
Create a new git tag matching the version exactly
Push the new tag to GitHub
Pushing a new tag to GitHub will trigger the publish workflow which package the project and publish the resulting artifacts to PyPI.
