Let's make another round.

I see that octave-ci, octave-matcompat and octave2.0 still list you as
maintainer.  Should they be transferred to
pkg-octave-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org too?

Looking at gsl itself, I can see neither of their names.  Have they
done any work and can they maybe do an upload fixing some bugs and
adding themselves as uploaders?

inline-octave has been adopted by the Octave group, and
libmath-numbercruncher and libstatistics-descriptive-perl by the Perl
group.  Maybe you can file RFAs for finance-streamer and dbd-odbc?

OK (uploaded in the meantime).

Great.  Seems most of the packages have been adopted now.
