Sahil's bug fix looks OK to me.  It still applies (albeit not with some fuzz and an 83 line offset).

Since it is marked "Important", I hope it can be closed (or downgraded) before long.

Please review my bugfix and notify me if its okay.

I would like to update the GUI to use the following naming convention:

"Contribute to Octave" points to the "get-involved" page (which I would also like to rename to "contribute"). This is currently called "Developer Resources".

"Donate to Octave" points to the "donate" page. This is currently confusingly called "Contribute to Octave".

I know the term "contribute" is somewhat overloaded, but I would like to more clearly use it to mean "I want to help work on Octave in some way". The web site URL should also be "/contribute" instead of "/get-involved". I've already pushed a symlink to the current site that creates this new URL.

Note: I would just do this outright, but I assume it might be contentious, so hoping for some comments. Adding jwe to CC.
