That would be OK, as would some kind of "info" command that lists

Could the default maintainer address be the octave-dev list then?  But
I would encourage the Octave Forge maintainers to not accept
maintenance of new packages by default, and instead ask that the
authors list themselves as maintainers.  If packages catch on then I
don't think the Octave Forge maintainers will want to be the default
maintainers of N packages.
