[Eeglablist] EEGLAB test suite

Dear EEGLAB Team, contributors, and users,

Recently I've sent following request to Andreas who have contributed at
some point to deliver a test suite for EEGLAB in an attempt to make it
(partially) compatible with Octave.  Unfortunately I have got no reply,
so I have decided to ask here:

* is there anyone interested/continuing the endeavor of Andreas in
  making EEGLAB Octave-friendly?  Besides GUI aspect, upon quick
  look I see that bulk of functionality in EEGLAB fails even syntax
  compatibility due to excessive use of nested functions.  But, I guess,
  if that aspect would be kept in mind for future EEGLAB developments it
  could be easily made Octave compatible.  or may be there are more
  severe issues?

* was Andreas' test suite (or parts of it) ever incorporated
  anywhere else?

Thanks in advance for clarifications!

Subject: EEGLAB test suite

Hi Andreas,

Me and Michael are the team of NeuroDebian project [1] working
toward making Debian GNU/Linux a convenient platform for neuroscience
research [2].  As the next target we are planing to support a selection
of the most popular toolboxes for Matlab (e.g. SPM and EEGLAB), and one
of our accents is to pursue at least partial (non-GUI functionality)
compatibility with recent versions of Octave.  For such purpose
unittests (or any other testing framework) are indispensable.  We saw
that you had done an outstanding job developing a test suite for EEGLAB
[3].  Unfortunately SVN repository has moved so no links on wiki are
up-to-date and new location  needs an authentication so we could
not check either the test-suite partially or in full could be used with
current version of eeglab.

We wonder if we could obtain access to SVN and either you would mind
sharing your thoughts on current status of the test-suite and your
eeglab for octave endeavor. 

Thank you in advance for the reply!
