I basically agree with your observations. We have made changes to the
Octave-Forge release system, that should make it easier for people to
release packages. This, however, doesn't change that Octave-Forge is
basically a place where people can distribute packages, and not a place
where people can share various scripts and minor functions.

I would support creating such place, and I would not object to hosting
this on the Octave-Forge web site. I, however, do not have the time to
actually work on this, so somebody else would have to do the actual
work. In practice, I guess the solution would be to setup some Drupal
system, and write a plugin for uploading files. I don't think it would
be a lot of work, but still I don't have the time :-(
