Important bugs

Avinoam
Dear Maintainers,

There are some Octave bugs that prevent the usage of external packages (such
as chebfun or mexopencv). Some of them are:

1. Bug #51709: Creating function handle to static methods [1]
2. Bug#39257: handles to nested functions are not yet supported [2]
3. Bug#51960: mex or oct function in +package directory that shadows Octave
function only works once [3]

(bug 3 is also reression wrt 4.2.2).
I have changed their severity to "4-Important", and I hope they will be
fixed before 4.4

Thanks,

Avinoam

I'm looking at the third item now.  I don't think the other two can be
fixed for the release as the changes for those are probably too
extensive.  Also, I don't think those features have ever worked in
Octave, but the third item is a regression.

Hey Avinoam,


I just wanted to let you know that, I submitted GSoC-18 proposal to address similar problems, specifically for chebfun.


So, if my proposal for GSoC-18 would be accepted, then I will probably fix a part of these issues. And I guess fixing the bugs for one external library would be a great help here. As, mostly we encounter similar bugs while using any such external library.


Thanks.
