A few weeks ago I’ve found the Oct2py Request for Package [https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=743499]
Oc2py is an interesting package, It’s an interface between Python and Octave, it allows you to run Octave/Matlab instrunctions in an
Python enviroment: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/oct2py/1.3.0
Well, the problem is that the latest version of GNU Octave on Debian Sid has a known issue, some unit tests fail with this version. It seems that upstream will be fixing it soon, I hope. [https://github.com/blink1073/oct2py/issues/40] .
