Bug#479152: ITP: core -- Jane Street Capital's alternative standard library for OCaml

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stefano Zacchiroli <zack@debian.org>

* Package name    : core
  Version         : 0.5.0
  Upstream Author : Jane Street Holding <opensource@janestcapital.com>
* URL             : http://ocaml.janestcapital.com/?q=node/13
* License         : LGPL
  Programming Lang: OCaml
  Description     : Jane Street Capital's alternative standard library for OCaml

   Core is Jane Street Capital's alternative standard library for OCaml.
   Core does a number of things: it provides tail recursive versions of
   non tail recursive functions in the standard library; changes the
   signature of many of the standard modules; includes generic
   serialization for most types, and adds some entirely new modules and
   new functionality within existing modules.
   Beware: Core extends some functionality from OCaml's standard
   library, and outright changes or replaces other. The goal is not to
   preserve complete compatibility with the standard.

The package is being worked on at
git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-ocaml-maint/packages/core.git (already
writable to debian-ocaml-maint contributors; help is welcome from them
as well as from anyone interested).
