Follow-up Comment #19, patch #10288 (project octave):

1 - Thanks. there is actually a help text style guide.  we're supposed to
double space after periods, no mention of other punctuation, but I'd assume 2
after the : is consistent. I should probably go back and fix the rest of the
docstring for that.

2 - if you look at the help for var, you'll see error messages regarding the
'all' option that use the "error: message about 'all'" format. This is
consistent with Octave's general use of double quoted strings, making it
easier to put single quotes inside  to be echoed with the string.

3 - Octave's mercurial source code system has two primary branches - stable
and default.  Stable is 'production code', being readied for the next release,
and generally only directly getting bugfixes, documentation fixes, etc.
default is where most 'hacking' and feature introduction should take place.
Official releases are made from stable (e.g., the recent 7.3.0), and for a
major release, at some point there's a feature freeze on default, it's merged
into stable, and then prepared for release (e.g., the upcoming 8.1), and then
the default branch becomes the location for the next major release (9).  We
could create new branches for different features, but generally don't, instead
using submitted patches to capture code progress.
