There doesn't seem to be any upstream release.
To Maxence: are you planning to make a release soon? Do you think it is
appropriate to distribute ocaml-r in Debian in its current state?

Mantis is down right now, but having to use the "-rectypes" option is
"normal" for a library that uses "-rectypes" itself. It's a bit like
with threads. From the toplevel, you can also use the "#rectypes;;"
directive. Of course, you can also link a toplevel with R and rectypes,
but I am not sure this is really relevant...

Sure. Install dh-ocaml (>= 0.5.0), be sure your ssh is configured
properly to login to *.debian.org without explicitly giving the login,
and do "dom-new-git-repo ocaml-r" from the repository.
BTW, if you just want your repository to be publically available,
without committing to pkg-ocaml-maint, setting up mail/IRC
notifications, and so, you can put it in your home. Refer to "Using
personal Git repositories" on .
