Hello,
I'm interesting in algebraic systems, math (especially algebra) and
programming (I'm informatic) and I'd like to start to contribute to
octave package (if it is possible).
I want to ask you if there is any up to date list of "free" octava
projects or feature requests from which I can choose some project, which
I can solve. I found two documents http://www.octave.org/projects.html

`
``
`

This one is very out of date.. An updated version is in the CVS at
http://www.octave.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/octave/PROJECTS?rev=HEAD&view=auto

`Before starting any project in this list, I'd suggest contacting
``address@hidden with your intentions, as there has generally
``already been some thinking, and even example code, or a good reason not
``to proceed for all of them...
`

and http://wiki.octave.org/wiki.pl?MostWanted - but I'm not sure
whether these pages are not out of date.

`
``
`

`Again be careful with this list, some of them have been implemented (eg
``-e flag or example or typed compiler), and many don't make any sense as
``explained in the wiki itself.. I'd be more inclined to start from the
``PROJECT file above.
`

My math specialization is algebra so I'm especially interested in
algebraic projects - linear algebra, linear programming, matrices, graph
algorithms, ... or mathematical analysis projects.

`Want to implement the sparse graph theory stuff. That is etreeplot,
``treeplot, gplot and treelayout. I couldn't be bothered with these
``functions when implementing the sparse stuff, so if someone else doesn't
``implement them, they won't be implemented :-)
`
Cheers
David
