Currently we have two non-free packages in Octave-Forge: 'gpc' and
'spline-gsvspl'. These have been part of Octave-Forge from before I
started using Octave, so I am unsure about the motivation for making
them part of Octave-Forge.

Today we do not accept new GPL incompatible packages at Octave-Forge.

I am willing to discuss removing incompatible packages from
Octave-Forge, but I think such a discussion should happen in a different
thread on the Octave-Forge list. It is, however, important to me that
the maintainers of these packages take part in such a discussion.
