Ok. As I told you yesterday I can't speak much too French, but please keep
me informed about it.

I really think it will be better if you do the job; you are more experienced
than I am, and of course it is the presence of better packages what matters,
not who maintains them, isn't it? Please go on and package ocaml.

Just a comment about ocaml package, is there any problem for making a
separate ocaml-doc new package? Documentation is quite big and I think it
would be a good idea given that basic usage etc does not differ from one
version to another.

I use it at my faculty too so it will be nice to have newer versions as soon
as possible, it's definitevely a good idea for you to maintain it.
