I am new to GitHub. In fact, I have just made an account only to send the author of this program a message informing about an small extension I have developed for his program.

But I can not find a way to contact the author, nor report it in the programming branch.

Could someone please explain the method?

    There isn't a way. If the author has not supplied the information to contact him you cannot contact him.

  • @slhck, if this question is off-topic, maybe it should be posted at StackOverFlow? It didn't seem to me as a programming question, so I asked it at SuperUser.

First to answer your question: his user profile refers to a website which has his email address at the bottom.

Normally on Github to push additions/fixes to upstream:

  • Cool, @mtak. But my script is not a change in the original repository, but rather a program that executes its program and closes it automatically after a given time. So I think I will contact him via eMail, as long as we have finally found it. Thanks you.

Why not try opening an issue?

Despite the name, GitHub issues are used for more than just bug tracking. They're also a great way to reach out to the maintainer with questions or comments about their projects, or even to just say thanks.
