No, but there seems growing consensus that Donoghue should have it. Both jwe and I agree.

Mr Donoghue, do you want it?

Works perfectly, thanks.

Do you have commit access yourself? (I don't see your name in the "Assigned to" drop-down list)

Patch attached to not connect to editor window with QScintilla isnt being used, using the same #ifdef HAVE_QSCINTILLA check as used elsewhere in the files.

Mageia-2 Linux.
I forgot to have QScintilla-dev package installed before building Octave, yet I think the error messages I get when starting the Octave-GUI shouldn't occur:
