Migration to Octave 3.8

We are currently undertaking a transition from Octave 3.6 to Octave 3.8, which implies renaming some dependencies/build-dependencies (see 735557)

The following table lists the current state of the migrations for each package, and who has taken responsibility for it. The number of installed packages comes from the Debian Popularity Contest project (updated on 2014-02-13).

The following table lists Debian Octave Group packages that are Architecture: all, or do not have a particular dependency on Octave 3.6 or 3.8, and therefore are not a part of this transition.

The following table lists packages that have been removed from Debian and are therefore not important for the transition (this just serves as reminder that they were not overlooked):
