Richard is not sponsored at the moment, plus I'll note that I've talked to a 
couple of people that'd be able to sponsor Richard with these packages, they 
seem to want to wait until the ocaml guidelines are in.  Personally I would 
have reviewed half the ocaml- packages by now if it was possible ;)

Xavier, Nigel:

Just a quick note to say that I'll be bringing out updated versions
of these packages when I have time (probably next week).  I intend

(1) Make sure they all compile on bytecode-only architectures.
(2) Remove the recursive call to rpm in ocaml-find-requires.sh
(3) Change the mod deps to ocaml(Module) = hash
(4) Investigate getting ocaml-find-requires/ocaml-find-provides into
rpmbuild base so that we don't need external scripts
(5) (Possibly) rebase to OCaml 3.10

(#5 is ambitious)

These come out of the Fedora Packaging meeting last Tuesday (see
the IRC log here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Minutes20070605?highlight=ocaml )

Comment 4 Xavier Lamien 2007-06-08 00:12:22 EDT
So the block NEEDSPONSOR should be set.

this guideline it's a good point.
Comment 5 Xavier Lamien 2007-06-09 09:09:16 EDT
This package has a dependency on ocaml-findlib-devel which isn't in the
repository yet. This dependency has been requested for a review which shoulb be
approved and imported before make a full review of this one.

Note: So i added this review request in dependency block.

E: ocaml-curl no-binary --> should fix

=== Some commnet: ===

# about docs
Use %doc rules instead of
"cp -r examples $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_docdir}/%{name}-devel-%{version}/"
%doc examples/*

# About requires
As you BuildRequired curl-devel, you should not set curl on Requires.
rpmbuild should do it.

  E: ocaml-curl no-binary

I don't know how to fix this one.  I asked about it on fedora-devel-list
some time ago and got a response which I took to mean that I should ignore
the error.  Search down in the following message for "no-binary":


Docs & requires are fixed in these packages:

Comment 10 Xavier Lamien 2007-08-02 11:43:31 EDT
by set it to noarch, it can be arch-specific anymore.
This error can be ignored.

However i think those rpmlint issues should be mentioned in OCaml Packaging
Guidelines (maybe you already plan to do it :)).

* All other issues above has been fixed in 0.2.1-3
