I am not sure I can dedicate the time to this at the moment.  If I could rely 
on github and just give people commit privilege so that they can update their 
branch, I would be happy to do that.

I find sourceforge to be a pain overall, with its lame email archive, its ads, 
and its funky download system.  The way octave forge is set up there might 
deter casual scripters from posting their scripts, even while it is pretty 
decent as a place for people to develop bigger libraries.  The mathworks site 
is a great place to put a 20 line one-off that others might find useful, and 
there is no analogue for the Octave world that I know of.
