More than one person can review a package, in fact that would be great.

The reviewing procedure in short:

  1. Pick a package at https://sourceforge.net/p/octave/package-releases/
  2. Copy the check-list below and fill it out, marking each box:
    • [x] for successfully passed
    • [ ] for not done / error (please give below the checklist a brief reason)
  3. Paste your filled in check-list as a comment on the issue above
  4. An Octave Forge Admin will try to look over your review and hopefully release the package.
