I am the cygwin package maintainer, so I am currently packing > 50*2

I am already taking long time checking that additional revisions

from the several repository (HG, SVN, GIT)

Hello Marco,

Do you mean that you create cygwin packages directly from snapshots of the repository of each Octave package ?

If you do that, the interval package is not the only package with which you will have problems. The stk package too. And probably others.

Creating a release from the source files from the repository is the job of the package maintainer. There is no standardized way of doing this, currently (for instance, "make dist"). Some packages require special steps during the release process. Other are more straightforward. Only the package maintainer knows for sure.

Why not get the released tarball directly from SourceForge ?
