Steps to follow
Insure it's a meaningful improvement
Was this improvement ever proposed or discussed? (Search in Google or Redmine)
Is there already a way to achieve a similar result?
Would it benefit many people? Can you find cases in existing code where it would be useful?
Think about it
What's a good name?
What exact arguments does it accept?
What does it return?
Any risk of incompatibility?
Write it up
Use a good title: if title is not so good, the ticket will be ignored
State how the current situation can be improved
Make a concise but complete proposal
Address objections you can foresee
Create a Feature Request on http://bugs.redmine.com and follow through. Open one issue per feature request!
Making a good sections¶
Good sections help us to understand your proposal.
- Background (problem, what is problem you are )
- Implementation (if you have. submit with implementation will help us which is feasible or not)
- Evaluation of your implementation (performance, usability and so on)
- Discussion (remaining points which we need to consider, pros. and cons. for other approach, and so on)
(same as academic papers)
will help us.
Just ideas are difficult to consider (if it seems not valuable).
