When github detects the language of a project, it inevitably marks all .m files as MATLAB.
This is true even if the project is primarily an octave project, incompatible with MATLAB.
Worse still, Octave doesn’t even appear as a valid language to filter by in search menus.
As an octave user, I find that very disappointing and disheartening, but I have no idea what could be done to get github to recognise Octave on their site as a proper language.
Is there anything we could be doing as a community to get octave recognised as a proper language on github?
