John is a professor of biomechanics and uses Octave on his classes. Most of the
exercises he gives to the class require the use of multiple packages in Octave
metapackage for his student listing all required packages. The students install
it with "pkg install -url path-to-his-metapackage". The metapackage has no file
it simply lists a bunch of package has as dependencies. Since pkg solves this
dependencies automatically, a message showing which packages will be installed
is displayed before doing it.
