Will anyone advice me what should I do to become the maintainer of this package?

    Yes, I totally agree.. Machine learning is state of the art now

    Learning course, I have written few functions for my students to
    implement ANN for example. They work fine under Octave as well as
    Matlab. But there are not similar to Matlab ANN toolbox structure.
    I may add them to Github so wider range of users may use them.

    Question: Is it necessary for the developed packages to be
    identical as Matlab toolboxes? Is it possible to have Octave style
    CNN or Deep learning packages?

    Thank you

About being Identical to matlab:

If we are not the same as matlab, then we will get a lot of complaints like " My code works on matlab but not on octave"
But we can have more features and different features (better) than matlab.
So we should try and minimize the complaints but still have unique and better code.
Just my 2C worth.

    The development of the NNET package by the original author,
    Michael Schmid,

    stopped in 2010. Three years ago Francesco Faccio [1] volunteered to

    continue the development. However, NNET is still stuck on version

    Last Release Date: 2010-12-02. As a result, the recent changes in
    Octave and

    the deprecation of some functions (e.g. finite) have render this

    broken. This is a shame. NNET is not state of the art, but it is
    the only

    readily available option for NN in Octave. Currently, it is
    useless to the

    average Octave user only because of some very minor issues.

    I would like to contribute to this package doing some minor

    regarding the amount of work, but critical regarding the
    functionality (e.g.

    replace deprecated functions and symbols, improve documents, etc.).

    I am familiar with Mercurial and Github, but I don't know how
