This is very interesting !

Some colleagues and I have also been using Octave for VISA, DAQmx,
DC1394 and Modbus instrument control for a while.
(we have several experiments that use it every day)

We decided recently to put the code on Github too. Mostly because I am
now convinced that there is no legal issue (I was afraid of people
complaining if it somehow breaks their instruments), and because we are
three people committing changes, so a VCS was needed.

That makes 3 packages for the same purpose. However, I don't know about
yours, but mine uses National Instruments libraries for VISA and DAQmx,
and free libraries for FireWire cameras and Modbus. 

I guess the NI part is not compatible with octave-forge policy of not
encouraging using proprietary software.
