Dear John Hedengren,
Thank you for your interest in creating an Octave package. The
requirements for Octave Forge are listed here . Please note, that an
Octave package is not necessarily an Octave "Forge" package. Octave
Forge I would define as "managed hosting location for general purpose
It seems to me, you are maintaining a special purpose package for a
distinct audience (students of your university), that requires a special
hardware, that is only available in your lab? I think in your case
using Octave Forge might not be worth the effort then.
If your students are using GNU Octave and your Octave code is built as
Octave package , you can tell your students to install packages by
giving an URL to an Octave package archive. For example pythonic :
This works with Octave 4.4 and newer. The URL is admittedly a little
longer, but I think this is for your project the way to go.
