I am very happy to see OCaml being adopted widely, and in particular when it 
come to reliability which is the case here. Otherwise, I don't see the point 
in figthing with Haskell, but that's not the topic.

Well, you know, not all the people have the same background. A job interest is 
very different than a technical interest.

Hence, when discussing about jobs and this stuff, it can quickly show some huge 
differences. For instance, I don't think that OCaml's maintainers at INRIA have 
the same interests about the language than people in Janest. Nor the same 
income.

Even more, some people contribute to OCaml in their spare time, which means 
they don't get money from it, and probably don't want.

More over, although we are all here to discuss about the technical issues in 
OCaml, we don't all have the same ideas about external concerns, in particular 
finance in my case.

However, even though my first message was probably a bit rude, I did not mean 
to argue in this topic. I don't believe this is a place for that, and, all in 
all, I wish all the best to other contributors to OCaml, although I do not 
necessarily like the application themselves.

Hence, I would argue that a seperation in this topic would be a good thing to 
avoid furstrating people that have different background but would otherwise 
have very fruitful interactions in the pure field of technical concerns about 
OCaml.

I also think it's been enough on this topic, for the very reasons I've just 
explained !


All the best,

Romain
