I need to learn OCaml properly for a project and bought the new Real
World OCaml book. Since Fedora doesn't have the Jane Street Core
libraries included, which is used throughout RWO, I made packages for
them using ocaml-sexplib.spec as a model (so hopefully they follow the
packaging standards, since I'm quite a noob). All the packages can be
They seem to work properly, but I haven't had time to write the
%description and Summary for some of the files. In particular, I do not
know what they all do and the sources lack descriptions. I would
appreciate it if someone is willing to help go through the files and add
appropriate descriptions where needed and mail me patches.
Unless it's a deliberate decision to exclude these libraries from
Fedora, I'm happy to push them into Bugzilla once descriptions and
summaries are in order and maintain them. This is much less painful for
me than having to deal with OPAM.
Note also that both ocaml-bin-prot and ocaml-bin-sexplib are updated
here to the newest upstream version.
Any comments are appreciated.
