[Pkg-octave-devel] Dynare status

I have been sidetracked by urgent issues during the last weeks, but I
now want to get ready for the first release of Dynare Debian package.
Right now, the source package builds 3 packages:
* dynare-common: all M-files, placed under /usr/share/dynare
* dynare: arch-dependent files (an executable and some MEX files), in
* dynare-doc: manual, user guide and other doc stuff
The only issue which still needs to be solved is how to make Dynare
available to Octave in its path.
So far we have instructed Dynare users to manually add the relevant
path (here /usr/share/dynare/matlab) with "addpath" command, and then
to run the top-level file "dynare.m".
So if we keep this way of using Dynare, the package can be released
now (provided that I update README.Debian). For the sake of
simplicity, and since this would be consistent with our Dynare package
for Windows, I would actually prefer that solution.
Otherwise we could make a symlink in $(MDIR), pointing to dynare.m.
This is the easiest way of avoiding manual path manipulations. And I
prefer a symlink, because I don't wan't to move dynare.m out of
/usr/share/dynare/matlab (Matlab users need it).
All the best,
