;-) That is why i am refering them as up-upstream authors ( it is not a
typo error ). It is just to make the distinction on the job consisting
of creating upstream source -> package and the job consisting of
upstream sources -> file collection -> package

I am aiming at nothing, in fact. I just consider that is is simpler to
add one file to a svn dir than to upload a full .tar.gz each time we
need to add one file to this package.
The projects/ of pkg-ocaml-maint, is not A project, ie i don't want to
steal the authoring of the file. The only differences between packages/
and projects/ is that working in projects/ is targeted to all file in
the package and working in packages/ is targeted only on working on
After this, i have no problem having a full .tar.gz uploaded each time
we do an update... I really don't care, it was just a matter of
