I think what JuanPi is referring to is the step 12:  Some Octave Forge admin has to accept the reviewed package put the released tarball to [1], and finally announce the package update on the website (updated list of functions and so on) to make `pkg install -forge` work.

Oliver did lots of work last year to make Octave Forge a great website and to formulate a SourceForge based release procedure.  I am too little involved in this project to judge the real effort, but I have the impression, that things are too complicated this year for the current manpower.  Is Oliver currently the only one who can do this final package release steps?  The SourceForge release list [2] counts 13 pending items over two months.  Did the Octave Forge release process stall?

If more manpower can help here, I'd be willing to volunteer, too. As a former Mac Homebrew maintainer, I have some experience with package managers and distro maintenance.
