I missed them, but yes, I understand why they are not there. Both
mldonkey and coq build-depends on ocaml-*, but don't have any
relationship between the binary package and some ocaml-* package.
Basically, what the status generation script is telling is that those
packages do not need any transition, and I think it is right: those
packages will continue working even if the ocaml version in the archive
get changes.

Of course it is not granted that they will be able to build properly
against the new OCaml, so it can be useful to have a way to see in the
status page packages which build-depends on ocaml-* but does not depend
on it. What do you think? Proposals about how to show them?

Eh :), you see, the page is useful :-P But I'm getting curious: what the
heck happened to that packages for not being properly reported?
