To be honest, I haven't thought about this
perspective at all before. I
spoke to 3 people this afternoon about this. All of them like the idea
very much. R, Matlab and other well-known competitors don't need such
advertisement anymore. Gretl, instead, faces some kind of asymmetric
information issue: Potential users may not be aware of its capabilities
and they want to see some "seal of quality". Showing people some
publication record may be such a "seal of quality".

Does this mean you're supporting the upload of a list/table of your
research using gretl, Sven and Stefano?
