Feature Requests

You must now log in to a tigris.org account before submitting a feature request!

Feature requests should be submitted to the "Enter Issue" page. A more detailed set of submission steps can be found below.

The "Enter Issue" links on this page, by default, create a FEATURE request, a request for completely new SCons functionality. If your request is for modified behavior of an already-existing SCons feature, you may wish to change the Issue type to an ENHANCEMENT request. If you're not sure, leave the issue as a FEATURE request; it can be reclassified in the future, if necessary.

Steps for Submitting a Feature Request

The following guides you step-by-step through the process of submitting a feature request.

  • Log in at tigris.org

    If you do not already have a tigris.org account, register for one at http://www.tigris.org/servlets/Join.

    We no longer accept anonymous feature requests, due to spambot abuse of the open-door policy.

  • Go to the "Enter issue" page

    By default, the "scons" subcomponent is selected; if this bug is for a different subcomponent, select that instead.

  • Fill in a good Summary line describing the feature you're requesting

    This line is what shows up in summary reports, so it should be descriptive but not too long.

  • Fill in the Description field

    This is where you should go into detail about what you'd like to see SCons do differently. When in doubt, include more information rather than less.

  • Press the "Submit issue" to submit your request

    You will now receive a Posting issue page that gives you the number of the issue you submitted. If you want to attach a file to your feature request, you can do so by clicking the Attach a file to this issue link and using that page to upload a file.
