Simpler licensing. I also don't mind if you just put your own name in there!

Also, added a description and keywords.

Gnome Software (and other GUI package managers) uses metainfo.xml files to link pkgs as "Add-ons", in this case to GNU Octave.

Here is a patch to add such a file.

I think the file should just be included in the released .tar.gz like DESCRIPTION, NEWS, etc. But I didn't see a Makefile that actually creates the tarball. I wasn't sure if I should add it here or not:
(so I did not).
