freeze exception for dh-ocaml

Package: release.debian.org

Hello, can we please have a freeze exception for dh-ocaml 0.9.6. It
contains essentially a documentation update (ocaml packaging policy),
but also two small bugfixes in tools distributed by the package. I know
that this is against the stricter rules posted by Neil on Friday, however
these tools are just /bin/sh wrappers around git commands.

Anyway, if the bug fixes are a problem please tell me and I can roll them
back, and update only the documentation.

dh-ocaml (0.9.6) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Stéphane Glondu ]
  * debian/control:
    - add git-core to Suggests
    - bump Standards-Version to 3.9.1 (no changes)
  * tools/:
    - dom-new-git-repo: explicitly use sh when executing remote commands
      via ssh (Closes: #588371)
    - dom-git-checkout: check for existence of upstream/pristine-tar
      remote branches before creating local ones (Closes: #591555)

  [ Ralf Treinen ]
  * policy/: continue work started by Sylvain Le Gall on splitting the 
    document into policy and reference (thanks, Sylvain!):
    - current value of ocaml version no longer mentionend in policy
    - fix location of library directory (closes: #591556)
    - refactor sections, many small changes all over the document
    - streamline discussion on bytecode vs native code
    - compiling with -custom is deprecated (closes: #500286)
    - reference: add section on dh
    - findlib integration: META files always go in the directory of the
      library, debian-specific ones should have a comment.
  * Makefile: generate the reference document
  * update authors in doc-base registration for the policy
  * add doc-base registration for the reference.
  * Added myself to uploaders.
