Well, that documented, as the author says, is a bit outdated. Matlab
is not free software, which is always a strong argument to choose any

I think you should not open a second ITP in that case, just for future
reference. Followup on the old ITP, and if it is more than a year, you
can probably safely assume that the old ITP'er has forgotten it or
changed plans. Cc the submitter on the followup, wait a week or two
and upload. :)

My question concerning Octave was not meant as a reason to let it out
of Debian, I asked because I used Octave a bit and wondered what rlab
would have to offer. Go ahead and package it, and don't forget to
close both your ITP and the old one.
