I don't want to install the svn packages from octave-forge repository. I want to install the lastest stable packages from octave-forge. Which is something I cannot do unless I follow some instructions in the docs that, as an end user, I'm not supposed to read.

So I can't use the lastest stable versions of octave-packages unless I use the unstable and masked software and somebody manually mantains an external database. I can't see how this is easier for the end user.

Thanks for your time, but I think is easier, faster and better for me if I mantain my own ebuild-based repo.

Cheers,
