community is essentially in charge of recommending best practices,
standards, etc. A candidate name has been suggested: "OSR", for "OCaml
Standard Recommandations."

Let me suggest the following process:
* anyone on this mailing-list may ask for or suggest best practises --
to do so, please put [OSR] in the header of your e-mail
