Ah, great, that was not clear so far to me either.

Then ask for help.

I think that in Debian we will benefit from such a central repository
too (and much more we will benefit from any standardization efforts
about how OCaml libraries are packages, distributed, ...), so I'm
personally willing to invest some of my Debian time to help you out in
this. I guess other of ours Debian OCaml maintainers colleagues will be
happy to do the same.

Also, from a management point of view, we already have a chain of trust
among us (we already share repository management elsewhere for example)
and I think this aspect would grant the OCaml community some more
assurance of fault tolerance in case you will sometime be unable to fix
something. (This, of course, assuming your company is not against this
kind of co-operation.)

What do you think?
