If you have not already done so, please
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,
you can register for one at
You can still submit a feature request anonymously, without logging in.
If you choose not to create a tigris.org account,
putting some identifying contact information
in the description will be helpful in case
the feature request requires some clarification.
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.
