Re: From the Trenches: MOTU Science
Yes, scilab took a lot of effort but we and a new Debian maintainer were able to get scilab4.0 packaged and in for Edgy (6.10). It is enough of a change and difficult to package that I don't think we'll backport it or put it in -updates although if enough people want it I can look into it.

I doubt that MOTU Science really has the resources to maintain a compiler package but I can poke Debian at least
Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming.
