I take the opportunity to advertise the DOG (Debian Octave Group) which
is responsible for maintaining the Octave-related packages.  Any person,
DD or not, is invited to join us. See http://pkg-octave.alioth.debian.org/.

Back to your question, the octave2.9 package in experimental needs some
work.  First, there is a new 2.9.3 upstream version available.  Second,
we should port the recent changes regarding libhsdf5 and the C++ ABI
transition from octave2.1 to octave2.9.
As I wrote above, manpower for package development is welcome.
