Contributing to pymc-tfp

How can one contribute to pymc4 ? Are there tasks that are being tracked ?

We are working on a list of tasks to help focus contributions. At the moment, the most important thing that needs to be done is to get mass matrix adaptation working.

Then there’s a long list of tasks like asking VI, GP and GLMs. Also adding time series and handling of missing values in observations.

The more beginner friendly tasks involve documentation and adding support for more distributions. Once we settle on a list, we’ll open detailed issues on pymc4 to guide interested contributors better. For now though, feel free to try to tackle any of the tasks I listed above.


Hey there! Hope you are doing well @lucianopaz. Do we just look over Issues & create PRs related to documentation, by chance?

Thanks a bunch! :smiley:

Note that we deprioritized the development of PyMC4 (change name to pymc-tfp): The future of PyMC3, or: Theano is dead, long live Theano

Ah, thank you @junpenglao! Apparently, I was only looking at the pymc3 repo, and didn’t realize new development in the Theano/Jax repo.

Will check it out!
