The proposed 1.2.4 tarball would be perfect for Debian, at least regarding the building of the documentation.  Please, release it.

Building the documentation requires also the Makefile in the main package directory. I don't know whether it is ok to include the Makefiles, since the tarball is what gets installed with "pkg install -forge queueing" and I vaguely remember that the requirement was to keep its content as tidy as possible.

Would the attached tarball be fine with both Debian and the Octave-forge guidelines? It contains all images in .png and .pdf format, so that the documentation can be built with:

texi2pdf queueing.texi (-> queueing.pdf)
makeinfo --html --no-split queueing.texi (-> queueing.html)

(file #38400)

The files doc/Makefile and doc/demo_web.m, which are present in the Mercurial repository, are needed for building the documentation files queueing.{info,pdf}.  However, they are absent from the 1.2.3 tarball, which prevent the inclusion of those files in the Debian package.  Please, include them in the next release tarball.
