I have fixed any outdated occurrences of the FSF address in changesets e5f864d5f7a4, 99c3844f6170, and 0e033ca4ec01.

This bug may be closed.

The crlibm is no longer maintained upstream. Its website has been closed and the repository has been integrated into the metalibm project https://gforge.inria.fr/projects/metalibm/ – though they don't seem to update it anymore.

This is one of the reasons why the library is bundled in the Octave package. I have already made some smaller fixes to keep it up-to-date without notifying anybody.

Can you prepare a patch to fix the address in the octave-forge repository?

While packaging Interval for Fedora, I got this error from a package linter. Not sure why its an error rather than a warning but anyway:


Note crlibm is a bundled library. A fix should probably be pushed to the upstream crlibm. But their website is currently unavailable.
