Another suggestion for Octave developers now that is
registered (thanks to those of you who have sent a contribution toward 
that cost, by the way)...

VA Linux just recently announced the opening of a free hosting
service, SourceForge (, for open source
projects.  The services available are simply amazing.  For example:

o web server (obviously)

o domain hosting - so we could make the recently-registered
  point there instead of as we'd originally planned

o secure shell (ssh) access

o e-mail lists - yes, we could move the octave mailing list(s) there
  if desired

o cvs repository

o bug-tracking system

o discussion forums

and more.  See the full list with details here:

also be sure to check out the FAQ here:

I know I'm going to be moving my projects to SourceForge ASAP - not
having to deal with mailing lists, cvs repository access, bug-
tracking, etc. myself sounds excellent.

This morning I proposed this to the Gnuplot developers as well - I'm
thinking it would relieve them of a significant amount of work.  Could 
it do the same for Octave?  What do you think, John?  Would it make
your life easier?
