Isn't this a duplicate of bug #41841 ?

Hello Oliver,

Sure, the plan is to repair this broken feature, sooner or later.

It's been broken for some time now, so it's probably not an emergency, but I have opened this bug report to ensure that it will not be forgotten.

And yes, I also have bug #44198 in my "to do" list.

If the plan is to repair the feature, it probably depends on bug #44198.

The generation of "See also" hyperlinks by the generate_html package has been broken for quite some times.

Most (if not all) function description pages on the Octave Forge web site currently have plain "See also" references (no links).

The _makeinfo_ function still has a third input argument called see_also, but this argument is not actually used, and a comment in the source code makes it clear that this third argument is meant to be dropped in the future.
