First, would you consider becoming part of the debian-ocaml-maint team, and
commit your packaging effort in our subversion repo on alioth ? You need to
create an alioth acount, and we will approve you, and you can then checkin the
stuff, and we can more easily review and upload/sponsor it for you.
Also, did you read the ocaml packaging policy ?
