Debian:
Dirk does a wonderful job of keeping the octave
and octave-forge Debian packages up to date.
We need equally dedicated folks for other platforms.
There is also the currently less wonderful job with
octave-sp which few people use it, and I got too little help
from A.S. Hodel when I needed it, so the package
lingers -- this really should get refactored into
octave-forge
Somebody who uses this will have to step in and do
the work necessary to get it into octave-forge. With
a proper test suite, maintainers can keep the code
current without understanding the algorithms, but
without test cases that is impossible. Note that I don't
know if octave-sp already has the appropriate tests.
libinline-octave-perl which may need a maintenance release, but
again too few people know and use this
Is this also available from CPAN?
Does Debian interact well with CPAN?
and then there are the script (non-binary) packages
octave-ci where the remaining functions should get factored
into octave-forge
This was discussed a month ago:
http://www.octave.org/mailing-lists/help-octave/2004/114
Nobody expressed any interest in these functions. I have
no desire to add something to octave-forge that nobody is
using.
matwrap standalone tool for C/C++ wrapper generation, possibly
overlapping with mex in octave-forge
Someone should do the work necessary to get this into SWIG.
octave-epstk standalone, can probably stay that way.
Agreed.
Also, let's not forget Rafael's excellent work with
octave-gpc
octave-plplot
octave-statdataml
which he also keep current.
