  Description     : helper for building Octave packages

This package provides the infrastructure for building add-on packages for
Octave, a numerical computation program [1].  These add-on packages can be
installed by the user through the Octave's pkg.m system, but the Debian
Octave Group (DOG) [2] will provide them as Debian packages. The main origin
of such add-ons is the octave-forge project [3].

This package is meant to be used by the members of the DOG and should be of
very limited interest to the general user.
