Friday musings: missing function thoughts

two big hurdles to octave's adoption: missing functions and incompatibilities. The latter is usually dealt with pretty well. Usually there's an error or bug and it gets handled when discovered. 

But for missing functions, it's hit or miss. there are probably functions from old ml versions that still haven't been implemented. And we're constantly chasing new version functions.

I know there was a missing functions package. But it's last update was 2009 and I think most functions don't work amymore. Maybe the website changed?

It would be great if there was a way to say: octave 4.x is fully compatible with base Matlab 2012 or similar. Its a fixed point in time and the function set won't change. When someone shows up asking what to work on, you could say: well here's all that's left to get us compatible with Matlab 2013... toolboxes are another issue.

Has anyone looked to see if the information is available somewhere? Would it be useful to try to compile it?
