I understand :-)

I will consider ocamldoc as stable when my to do list entries are completed, and
some of the users will have reported me minor bugs, which i will correct to get
a stable release. Then, ocamldoc will be included in the ocaml distribution and
will be built with the toplevel 'make' in the ocaml directory, so there will be
just one package (i suppose).

I don't know, but we could talk about it at the JFLAs, with the guys using OCaml
in industry. Will you be there ?
