Subject: OCaml projects on github, hard to find?
Hello all,

Before anyone claimed that I am not honest, let me be clear: I am one of
the admin of OCaml Forge, so I am biased.

So here is my problem, from time to time I found interesting OCaml
projects on github. But some are really hard to find. Let me take some
simple examples, using google search and small projects:

project URL, description, google request -> nĀ° page where the first entry is

*, Access to POSIX  clock_gettime,
 "ocaml clock" -> 7+
*, xor-based FEC,
 "ocaml tornado" -> 7+

This is not the case for everything, (e.g. ocaml-appengine,
ocaml-orm-sqlite, ocaml-redis et al are ranked 1st page).

Even if these projects are small, it would be great that they did a
single release and to be referenced on the Hump, for example.

N.B. modifying google request can improve ranking e.g. "ocaml xor fec"
or "ocaml fec".

p.s.: if someone can volunteer to create a small application that
automatically fetch new projects/news from project on github/google
code/whatever, I will be happy to add it to
