There is already an octave-maintainers mailing list, which I presume
serves the same purpose as a devel-octave list would.

Contributed files that are posted to the octave-sources mailing list
or sent directly to me are already included as I have time and as I
see fit.

So, I don't see how these suggestions would actually change anything,
except for the name of the octave-maintainers mailing list.
