I think it would be better if you didn't name your package "org.gnu" or
"org.octave". Can you put it under a name that you own until it is
somehow vetted or incorporated into the official Octave distribution?

I admittedly don't know much about the naming schemes or the typical
process for adding an application to the registry. But it does not seem
right to me to try to publish a binary distrubtion of Octave under the
name "org.gnu" without permission to use that name.

If I were you I would name it "com.github.Alexander-Wilms.Octave", until
something more official can be resolved.
