This is not currently possible as it would require the package manager
to download
the packages from the repository automatically.
On the other hand, in some linux distributions (at least fedora and
debian, AFAIK) octave packages are distributed via the system's
package manager which does usually support this feature so doing

apt-get install <package-name>

on debian or

yum install <package-name>

on fedora should do exactly what you ask
