So looking through old mailing lists it appears there was a problem with Octave as shipped with Fedora Core 3. I'm just very suprised after more than 10 years of development I can't find set of binary RPMS for octave and octave-forge "blessed" to work with FC3 (or FC4). I understand someone took the responsibility for maintaning octave/octave-forge for Fedora Extras as octave has been dropped from Fedora Core 4, but I couldn't find any of those packages. I also understand that many Octave developers (including John) are "build it from the source" kinda people, but in the corporate world it's lot easier if you can just point the support staff to a set of binary RPMS and say "install that".

Can we get something like "FreshRPMS.net" for octave? It would have distro specific binary packages for octave & octave-forge updated regularly. (Note: I'm not voluteering to do this. :) )
