Ask the Fink developers.  You might start here:

or ask the person who has been building Octave packages for Fink
whether there is anything you can do to help.


I asked the maintainer of the Octave package on Fink (Jeff Whitaker, see CC). He won't include Octave 2.9 on Fink as long as the Octave webpage states that version 2.0 is stable, 2.1 is testing, and 2.9 is development. Is this still the case? Isn't 2.0 really old and outdated? Isn't 2.1 the recommended (stable) version? Is 2.9 for developers only?

Since Jeff is not an Octave user he has no other option than just relying on the info given on the Octave webpage.
