I have released version 1.2.8 which should hopefully fix the problems. Quite a bit of time has passed since the last package release, and I have seen that octave-forge is now being deprecated. I therefore moved the source code for the queueing package to github here:


I already submitted a push request to update the octave.yaml file to make the new version visible on https://gnu-octave.github.io/packages/ . I hope to have followed the correct procedure for a package release (https://github.com/gnu-octave/packages/blob/main/CONTRIBUTING.md); if not please direct me to the correct instructions.

Queueing needs new package release. ".+" and ".-" no longer deprecated, but illegal with 9.x release.

I have tried hg snapshot and there are multiple issues:

   README.TOMS is not present.

-- Makefiles calls octave as "octave-cli", it should be just "octave"

-- During "make dist" building documentation fails with:

(./queueing.texi (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/texinfo/texinfo.tex
