Requesting new features for Boost libraries

If you have an idea for a feature or improvement to an existing Boost library - go ahead and post it to either boost-users list or boost mailing list (if you are posting for the first time, please read our discussion policy before you actually post).

You can also try submitting a feature request to our ticket system, but experience has shown that posting to either of the mailing lists is usually a more effective way to get attention of boost developers.

If your proposal has its merits, it's very likely that it will generate a constructive discussion that might actually result in (sometimes substantial) improvement of the library - and your name being put on the library's Acknowledgements section!
