Thanks to a recent post, I have just had a look at
where many matlab users share and exchange files and experiences, and
also evaluate each other code.

octave-forge is somewhat similar. There is also the wiki

i did not find any info about the licences of these, but I suspect
that this is less important for matlab users who care less than we do.

This is the big issue -- are the original copyright holders (e.g. the authors) of the scripts willing to release them under the GPL or indeed any other license? I find most people will be willing, but they have to be approached individually. I don't think anybody here wants to take the risk of redistributing anything with an unclear license.

I think mathworks does not place any restrictions on the files placed in the file-exchange, but I'm not sure.

I therefore also suppose that these codes could be tested on octave,
and maybe put somewhere in an "octave exchange" plateform.

i suppose that testing and adapting these could be easier that
rewriting everything, while at the same time providing many examples
of code running on octave (as well as on matlab), extending its
functionnalities, and showing that is can more and more replace
(hopefully at least) matlab.

I also suppose that his would help have the ball rolling in such a direction.

What do you think ?
