Code sprint: pkg.m

JuanPi
Hi all,

I created a doodle for November. The objective is to evaluate how many
people are joining the code sprint
(http://wiki.octave.org/Code_sprint:_pkg.m) and on what days we should
concentrate the activity.

Thank you for filling the poll

Is there a _spec_ for 'pkg.m' ? I have my own version, which is still broken, but less - at least, for me.

Looking into the code and playing with it I've come to the conclusion that _conceptually_ package management in Octave is not well defined, that's why I'm asking: is there a _functional_ spec telling what 'pkg.m' has to do ?

...

Looking at http://wiki.octave.org/Code_sprint:_pkg.m :

"Remove -global and -local flags  
        * Those flags are currently ignored internally anyways so they should disappear "

- huh ?

They are not ignored, and packages are installed into different locations.

Thanks,
  Sergei.

Sergei,

I do not know of functional specification for pkg.m. Maybe you can
contribute with one or maybe you can join us!

I amended the wiki.
