I think the name “octave-kernel” is not very good from a Debian
perspective, because it may give the impression that this package is
somehow related to the main “octave” package (being its core or
something like that), and it does not show the link to Jupyter.

I suggest that the package be rather named “octave-jupyter”, which is
much more explicit. This would also be consistent with already existing
packages like “sagemath-jupyter” (which provides the Sagemath kernel).
