The project pkg-octave has just been created at Alioth, as well as a mailing
list for general development discussion
(pkg-octave-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org).  I set the Reply-To for this
message to that list, so that further discussion can continue there.  

The goal is to encourage co-maintenance of as many Octave-related packages
in the pkg-octave project at Alioth as we can.  Developing a common
infrastructure for add-on Octave package building is also in our plans.  Any
Debian maintainer/developer interested in Octave related packages is
encouraged to join this project.
