"a-35" means that after experimentally adding ocaml to testing there are
35 uninstallable packages on alpha. However, testing isn't in a perfect
state, so there are usually some uninstallable packages to begin with.
On that day, it seems that testing started out with 5 uninstallable
packages on alpha, hence the difference.
You can find out what this original state is by looking for "ori:" lines
