For really quick fixes:

  1. Browse the documentation source code directly on the GitHub website:

  2. Navigate to the file you wish to change and click the edit icon


    GitHub Preview of style.rst page

  3. Use the editor to modify the file


    GitHub Editor for style.rst page

  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page, provide a commit comment and submit.

  5. GitHub will:

    • Create a fork and submit a pull request on your behalf; or

    • Immediately make the change for those with commit access


This technique is great for fixing small typos - but has the danger of introducing formatting mistakes preventing the documentation from being generated.

To make extensive changes see Workflow.
