The least that can be said ;-)

  Most of the libs do not provide shared versions. I think it is fine
  because they are rather small

  Or simply not ship it.

  That's what I intend to do.

  OCamlCVS and OCamlmake-o-matic are tools, not libraries.

  Stefano, since you already packaged some bits of cameleon, would you like
  to be co-maintainer on it?
  I can see if we can store the debian directory in Debian CVS, hence
  we could work in team.

  I can propose a first version of the packaging we would work on.

  I'm interested in integrating this.
