No idea.  But the bug seemed to be getting stale so I just pushed it.  We can add him to contributors.in if he wants, or ever emails you back.

@Rik: I was waiting for Victor Norton to tell me how he want to be credited (an entry into contributors.in should also happen). Do you know if he was/wants to be mentioned? Sorry for the delay, but he was not responsive.

I pushed the cset here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/0cf53cd75e13).  Marking as fixed and closing report.

The new text would be:

Compute the eigenvalues (@var{lambda}) and optionally the right eigenvectors (@var{V}) and the left eigenvectors (@var{W}) of a matrix or a pair of matrices.

If someone reviews shortly, I can push this one to stable.

Original report was here: http://octave.1599824.n4.nabble.com/help-eig-td4682308.html

Basically, the terms "eigenvalue" and "eigenvector" are mistaken.
