I will only be adding ATLAS to the development sources.  I consider
the stable sources to be pretty much dead unless someone wants to
volunteer to maintain them, but that seems unlikely.  I sent the
following to the octave-maintainers mailing list and received no

  This would require applying fixes that have been made to the current
  development sources (but only those that fix serious bugs or other
  truly annoying problems that are not too hard to fix).  It means being
  able to extract patches from the CVS archive, or by looking at diffs
  from the bleeding-edge releases and then adapting them so they will
  work with the 2.0.x sources.  You must be careful to err on the side
  of stability.  If a change only adds a new feature, or is so large
  that it is likely to cause more problems than it solves, you have to
  be able to skip it.

  I am asking for a volunteer to take over this job because I no longer
  can afford the time it takes to do this work myself, except for the
  most serious of bugs (i.e., Octave won't work at all, or crashes for
  reasonable input).
