  Hi Carnë,

thanks again for the nudge. Two questions:

  • Does the small attached patch fit the job? It's made as in
  • How does the hg repo become a package? I notice that sourceforge (and pkg install) still carries the outdated vrml-1.0.13.

  Thanks again,

On Debian/Ubuntu, you may want to apt-get install view3dscene and vrml_set_browser("view3dscene"). I'd submit these changes to octave-forge, but after RTFM a little, I haven't figured out how to submit patches :-(
I am forwarding you again the email I sent you back then.  Let me know
if there's anything not clear.

Hi Carnë, I'd like to update the vrml package on sourceforge. I did as explained on and posted a new package at

you are confusing two things.  There are patches which contributions to the
repository, and there's packages releases.  The later does not happen every
time there's a change to the repository.  What you need to do is:

  1) supply patches for the repository. You can do this by:

    1.1) have a clone of the packages hosted somewhere (sourceforge, bitbucket,
    and pikacode provide mercurial hosting) and then ask on the patch tracker
    to have csets X, Y, and Z merged.

    1.2) do not have a clone somewhere else and instead attach patch files to
    the patch tracker.  Note that patches are mercurial changesets.  See the
    Octave manual for details [1]

  2) once your csets are merged, you can then prepare a package release,
  build the html documentation, and upload it for review before release.
Mike Miller was kind enough to point me to, but when I go there, my SF user account "etienne" does not have appropriate credentials. Could you help me make this happen?
You will have to contact SourceForge about recovering your SF account.  I have
no power for doing that.
