BTW, Michael, could you please tell us who are the copyright holders and
which are the release years and licensing conditions of doc/mintoolkit.lyx?
We need this information in order to release the octave-optim Debian


Hi Rafael,
I'm the author, and looking at the file, it seems like I neglected to copyright it. Actually, that file is out of date, as is the corresponding pdf file, and should probably just be removed. I tried to remove it from o-f back when o-f was on CVS, but I couldn't get rid of it (if my memory serves me). I'll try now to remove it from SVN. Otherwise, I'm happy to license it GPL or the GNU free document license, whatever is easiest. I'll do this and the dependency thing for econometrics package now.
Cheers, Michael
