Thanks for saying i am not serious :)))

But then, pbuilder needs maybe more bandwith, is that not so, which i
don't have.

I have found another way to do the same thing though, i will build the
packages source only, with the -S option, and upload only that, and have
the autobuilder work for me. Nice it let me make ocaml uploads in mere
seconds, while a full binary upload would take me (and cost me, i
actually have wanadoo pay per minute isp subscription only, waiting for
the new adsl offers that will assuredly come soon) many many minutes.

More seriously, i am being rather busy with my phd thesis right now, so
i have not that much time for debian work. I _will_ continue to devote
time to the ocaml package, and plan to fix all the existing problems and
do the uploads, but this means i may lag some with the other library
packages, like lablgtk, so anyone should feel free to make an NMU for
them if i don't respond quickly.
