GitHub/GitLab organization for GNU Octave

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, I am @siko1056 on GitLab as well :wink:

Sorry for the slow reply here. For the record, I think this is a good idea.

@cbm I’m apjanke on GitLab (though I don’t really use it; I prefer GitHub too); could you add me there?

Hi @siko1056 i think this is a great idea.

I’m developing a package for octave (for websockets communications).

You can find me both on github and gitlab as marcomiretti Could you please add me to the organization so i can share this package? It’s hosted on both github and gitlab, (just mirrored).


Done @MarcoMiretti :white_check_mark:

@cbm shall every new group member on GitLab become an owner?

No strong feelings. Maintainers can do most things so maybe “Maintainer” should be the default? And if people need ownership, they can ask…? But as I said, no strong feelings if you feel differently.

Hi all,

I have requested access to the gitlab group.
Is there an association in github already?

Links to a “GitHub organization” and a “GitLab group” are given in the first post. I added you in GitLab and if you provide a username, I can do the same for GitHub :wink:

Sorry, I missed that, I thought they were screenshots :smiley: lol
Kai-san my user name in github is “kakila”. Thanks

Done and welcome :white_check_mark: Maybe I should have just tried in GitHub, your username was not hard to guess :innocent:

Kai-san, the work on modernizing the package manager is astounding!
I need to get to use it asap.

I wonder if we can reproduce this system in gitlab without doubling the amount of work. Also to look at, gitlab would allow to add pkg as a service

Maybe we can discuss this topic in GNU Octave - Package extension index?

Hi there,

Following up on with discussion with Nir GNU Octave - Patches: patch #9925, [octave forge] (statistics)... [Savannah], I would like to create a new Octave package called bootstrap forked from my repository here: GitHub - acp29/iboot: Iterated (double) bootstrap. I’m following the instructions on your gnu-octave GitHub page (GitHub - gnu-octave/pkg-example: A minimal GNU Octave package.), in which it says that the first step is requesting an invitation at the Discourse forum… which is here I presume as this is where the link took me.

So may I be invited? Presumably something needs to happen for me to be able to have the option to create a repository at GNU Octave · GitHub since I currently don’t see that feature, which is nicely illustrated in the screen shot in the instructions.

Hi @siko1056, I’m currently a CS student. I’d like to try to create a Octave package using the template. May I get an invitation? My Github link : 1099255210 (hg-1099255210) · GitHub. Thanks a lot.
