The Octane 4.00 final release is going to be available really soon, in a matter of few days or a week, and you can use the latest RC5 build now with Houdini 17. With the free update from Octane 3.08 to Octane 4.00, why do you need Octane 3.08 for Houdini 17? It is not impossible at all to update the 3.08 plugin branch to support Houdini 17, but I suppose it is better to spend this time working in the Octane 4.00 and beyond plugin adding new features and so on.
If you can give me a good reason to work on an Octane 3.08 plugin build for Houdini 17, I could think about it
... but if you are planning to update your pipeline to Houdini 17, at the same time you should think about updating to Octane 4.00
