Default Heads up: OCaml 3.11.0 rebuild for Fedora 11

Just a note that I'll be building OCaml 3.11.0+beta1 in Fedora 11
(future Rawhide). This will break everything OCaml-related for a
little while, since it's known that some packages don't build with the
new OCaml compiler yet.

Will you be initiating rebuilds of all the built-with-OCaml packages, or
is this a heads-up that individual maintainers need to, once the base
compiler build is done/tagged/pushed?

Thanks.

I will try to rebuild all dependent packages as well. Not ones out of
the Fedora tree though obviously .. I'm actually going to test the
upgrade on my local machine [using smock!] first so hopefully I won't
be committing anything catastrophically bad.

Default Heads up: OCaml 3.11.0 rebuild for Fedora 11

The complete rebuild went surprisingly well. Out of 48 packages named
'ocaml*', these are the 9 packages which _failed_ to build on my local
(x86-64) machine:

ocaml-type-conv camlp4 problem, already fixed upstream
ocaml-gsl strange problem in String.index_from function
ocaml-gettext "
ocaml-pxp "
ocaml-cil some sort of build system problem
ocaml-omake undefined reference to caml_sync
ocaml-pa-monad tighter module naming restrictions in 3.11 breaks this
ocaml-sexplib requires ocaml-type-conv, see above
ocaml-bitstring requires ocaml-cil, also has a known camlp4 problem

Can you test plplot?

Yes don't worry, I will test everything! I was just doing the ocaml-*
(ie. library) packages first because they're the most essential :-)

Works fine under 3.11.0.

BTW I would strongly recommend that the plplot-ocaml* subpackages
should include the correct OCaml dependencies, as required by the
guidelines and as produced by the custom ocaml-find-requires script.

Read my OCaml programming blog: http://camltastic.blogspot.com/
Fedora now supports 68 OCaml packages (the OPEN alternative to F#)
