Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 276641
suggestion for ocaml emacs code
Last modified: 2014-08-11 01:46:43 EDT
Currently ocaml-emacs installs various .el files
in /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp. However, it does not arrange
for these to be used when editing ocaml code in Emacs.
I have two suggestions here:
1. Make a subdirectory /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/caml and
put caml*.el there. This will still work just as well
(due to subdirs.el) and means less clutter in the top directory.
2. Take the 4 lines of emacs lisp code from
/usr/share/doc/ocaml-emacs-3.09.3/README and put them
into a new file, /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/caml.el
This way caml mode will be used automatically when appropriate.
I will look at it, whenever a new build for ocaml is due.
Tuareg-mode is an altogether better OCaml emacs mode. It's in Fedora >= 8
(as emacs-tuareg or xemacs-tuareg) and complies with the Fedora emacs
packaging guidelines (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Emacs).
See bug 433443.
Should we then simply remove the ocaml-emacs package?
It's a strange situation because INRIA are effectively maintaining
two emacs modes for OCaml. That seems to indicate that some people
must prefer the ocaml-emacs mode, so probably we should leave it.
Fedora apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We're
sorry it's taken so long for your bug to be properly triaged and acted
on. We appreciate the time you took to report this issue and want to
make sure no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If you're currently running a version of Fedora Core between 1 and 6,
please note that Fedora no longer maintains these releases. We strongly
encourage you to upgrade to a current Fedora release. In order to
refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs
for releases which are no longer maintained and closing them.
If this bug is still open against Fedora Core 1 through 6, thirty days
from now, it will be closed 'WONTFIX'. If you can reporduce this bug in
the latest Fedora version, please change to the respective version. If
you are unable to do this, please add a comment to this bug requesting
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled

better, check out http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers
People can easily configure their .emacs to select their
preferred emacs mode for OCaml.
Closing as WONTFIX.
