Sun 27 Aug 2017 03:48:34 PM UTC, original submission:

For certain Matlab compatible functions, Octave informs the user which OF package contains it. This information is hardcoded into Octave, which can cause errors -- e.g., there may be no OF package exactly corresponding to a Matlab package.

We should provide this information online. Once this is done, a patch should be suggested for Octave which uses the online information (caching it, for efficiency); the previous hardcoded information could be used as a fallback.
