Yes, if you look at my aggregates at 
you see that the three packages octave2.0, octave-ci and octave-matcompat are
all slated to be removed.  Jeroen reminded me regarding one of the three
last week, and I filed bug reports for the other two.

That concludes the Octave transfer from me over to the well-run pkg-octave
group at Alioth. 

Thanks for the follow-up, though.
