For what is worth, the one in the image package can be used as template http://hg.code.sf.net/p/octave/image/file/672b4b8dd371/octave-image.metainfo.xml

I'd like to ask you if you could ship a small xml file that contains AppStream metadata. It's a distro-agnostic format for AppStore-like catalogs for Linux distributions: http://www.freedesktop.org/software/appstream/docs/sect-Quickstart-Addons.html AppStream-based catalogs are currently included in all major Linux distributions: Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian, Arch,... If the xml file is copied to %{datadir}/appdata/ (typically /usr/share/appdata) the plugin appears in the profile of the app (Octave) and is easily discoverable and installable for users. I've created the file for you. See the attachment.



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
