Also, when you refer to 2.1.37 on your web pages as "unstable," 2.1.36 is
called "testing" and 2.1.35 is called "stable" don't be surprised if
people stick with 2.1.35 even if you don't want them to...

I appreciate your efforts.  I assume this means that these packages
install under Debian Linux on those cpu architectures.  That is good, but
it won't help me because I'm running Solaris, AIX and IRIX on the machines
I'm using right now (mine is Solaris, the others are in our supercomputing
institute --  I got the supercomputer team to install
Octave even though they are running MATLAB.  I want to develop for Octave
and I don't care so much if the code runs on MATLAB.

If you (or anyone else) can suggest the best way to keep my Solaris/sparc
Octave up to date without too much exertion of time, I'm listening.

That's good.  For now I'm just using numbers that don't occur elsewhere in
the data and using them as missing-value codes.  I convert those numbers
to NaNs after loading the data.

Thanks very much!
