Has anyone had a chance to take a look at this very annoying bug with using AutoMinorLocator?

Ok, I proposed a simple bug fix at https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/807
How does one go about submitting this to the matplotlib package?
Submitting to a github issue (as you've done) certainly works, and one of the developers should get to it soon.

We don't require it, but the next level of contribution would be to submit pull requests.  This is described in the matplotlib developer docs here:


But if you're not a regular git user and that's too much overhead for a simple patch, I wouldn't worry about it.


I submitted this PR: https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/807

The suggestion isn't a full solution, as I would rather see that the minor ticks still gets drawn, but at least it doesn't crash anymore.  Of course, I am not entirely certain of the value of having the minor ticks disappear and so this would just introduce "buggy" behavior, in a sense.
