@Surendra154 : Hi, Welcome to CSymPy !!! You can start by reading Design and Style guide documents. After that have a look at the issues list.

@sushant-hiray I'm sorry I didn't post any updates. I'm trying to get used to Teuchos RCP (never used an RCP before!) I'm not being able to devote as much time as I would like as my end sems are around the corner. I'll be much more active once they get over (by 28th, i.e)

I was wondering though, if it would be a good idea to arrange similar files in src into folders (or as headers and source files). I guess it will get messy as csympy grows.

the design doc holds some pointers on what RCP is. Though, you can just have a high level knowledge as it is just a smart pointer used to avoid memory leaks among other things

Yeah thanks a lot!!
I'm more than half way through the beginner's RCP guide (mentioned in the design doc). So I think I've got the basics.
I've been working on sympy's hyperbolic module. Will it be fine if I added some methods in csympy's trig or hyperbolic module that sympy has (say series expansion or rewrite_as_sin, etc)?

@certik, is there any method to compare a rational and an integer?
