Thank you for your contribution of the aerospace toolbox.

Just some clarification: The new example package [3] is part of a new
Octave package index [4], a superset of Octave Forge (OF) [2] (all OF
packages and more are contained), easier to handle for package
maintainers and less restrictive, but not yet officially published on
the Octave website (comes soon).

If you want to explicitly make the aerospace toolbox an OF community
package [2], you can of course use the new example package [3], but you
have to roughly consider three more restrictions to your development,
which will not be necessary in the new Octave package index [4]:

1. All your code must be in Octave syntax, "endif" instead of "end" for

2. You must host a repository (mirror) at SourceForge.

3. You must include and use a "magic" 😇 maintainers Makefile [1] in
your package repository to create release tarballs manually.

OF is only one way of publishing a package.  The Octave package manager
does in general not depend on OF.  Since Octave 4.4 you install packages
from arbitrary locations (see end of the README file [3]).
