Re: Debian package available for OCaml-R.

There doesn't seem to be any upstream release.

Yes. Source is only in darcs.

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?

I believe that it's more important to have a package in Debian people can tinker with than to have no OCaml/R binding.

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...

OK. I was simply a bit scared that -rectypes might conflict with other libraries I might want OCaml-R to integrate with. You seem to suggest that this is not an issue.

-2- Can I simply push the package to git so that you can inspect it? If
so, how should I do that?

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 [1].

OK. Will do. Thanks.
