  • Q: I'd like to participate. How do I begin?

    • 0

      Good starting points are our webpage http://www.scons.org, and especially the Wiki ( http://www.scons.org/wiki ). Snoop around, and decide whether you might like the project. Then say "Hi" on our user mailing list scons-users@scons.org, and we'll take it from there. ;)

      If you want to dive right in and hack away, visit http://www.scons.org/wiki/DeveloperGuide and read its introduction for getting pointers that lead you through our development process.

      • Tip:

        Discuss documentation, testing, webmastering, and/or publicity.

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        We need people to download version 0.4.5 and make sure the frobulator still frobulates correctly.

  • Q: What's a good bug for a newcomer to tackle?

    • [X]
      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with SCons that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.
