Package: autodep8
Version: 0.9
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Dear autodep8 maintainers,

I added the Git repository of the autodep8 package the support for the 
Octave-Forge packages [1] that are maintained by the Debian Octave Group 
[2].  I put it in the 'octave' branch of the Git repository [3].  I am 
attaching below the patch that applies to the current HEAD of the Git 
master branch (obtained with "git diff master..octave").

There are currently 51 packages in Debian that would be detected by 
autodep8 with the support I am proposing.

There was a discussion around this patch in the autopkgtest-devel 
mailing list [4].

Notice that this patch should only be released in autodep8 when version 
1.5.1 of the source package octave-pkg-dev (which contains the package 
octave-autopkgtest) reaches unstable.  Since this version introduces a 
new binary package, it will certainly goes through the NEW queue.

Thanks in advance for considering this patch,


Rafael Laboissière
