5. If we haven't installed the tool to our platform yet, you can ask us to do it faster. In order to make a request you should click the 'REQUEST TOOL' button.

6. Please fill in the form to let us know the details on your request: the name of the tool you need, github repository with its source code (or just a dedicated page), tell us reasons if you need it urgently, tell us if you are ok if the tool will be available through the terminal only or if you need interface.
