  Now, postgresql needs to be built on all arches, and wait for 2 days
  at it has priority high. This means that monday ocaml 3.06 could move
  into testing, it will be a bit later though for all autobuilders to
  catch up.

  => Both of these packages have been built for all arches, and have
  waited for enough days, and are thus ready to enter testing.

Well, i was almost right on this schedule. Now let's just wait for the

Once that is done, i will prepare a ocaml with moved libdir, bump the
virtual dependency, and you can all rebuild with it.

I much prefer 3.06.1 as dependency, but this could also be 3.06+1 or
3.06a or some other scheme. I don't think it is really astute that we
use 3.06-11 for this, altough if you all think it is best, i will do it.
