Project Infrastructure

From Octave
Jump to: navigation, search

The project sources, web pages, and related tools are spread over a number of different services.

As discussed at OctConf 2017, we would like to consolidate and update some of these resources so that they are easier to keep track of and manage.

Here is a summary of what we are currently using:
