Nothing else apparently.
As pointed out by me earlier and skaller on this thread, this is not a
bug in felix, but in OCaml. I didn't bother re-assigning it before
since I thought we were going to upload the fixed OCaml packages as soon
as someone got around to it. Re-assigning now. Note that felix is not
the only package which finds this bug, omake can also tickle this bug
(with no coincidence that these are two larger packages that actually
run tests during their builds)
Mike: I see that recently you've re-uploaded felix, can I ask why you
didn't tackle the build issue on some architectures? At the very minimum
we can avoid building the package on that arch, but also falling back to
bytecode only there shouldn't be too hard. Am I missing something else
Moot point as I've now re-assigned the bug to OCaml where it belongs.
Also, since we have to update OCaml anyway, I don't understand why we
would want to do so now. We would just have to do /another/ transition
to rebuild all the packages on the affected architectures.
As I've already said elsewhere, I totally agree with removing felix from
