* debian/control
- bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2 (no changes)
- bump debhelper deps and compatibilitiy to 8

meta-ocaml (3.07.4) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control
- ocaml-core: replaced dependency on fort with dependency on
libounit-ocaml-dev since the latter is definitely in a better
shape as a regression testing framework
2004-04-12 - Stefano Zacchiroli <zack@debian.org>
meta-ocaml (3.07.3) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control
- removed dependency on cryptokit from ocaml-libs (crytpokit is not
really a fundamantal library and a package on which it depends is
actually heavily bugged)

* debian/control
- s/ocaml-native-compilers/ocaml-best-compilers/

meta-ocaml (3.07.1) unstable; urgency=low

ocaml libraries and it's time to keep only most important
libraries as dependencies of these metapackages
- bumped Standards-Version to
- rewritten Description fields
- set Maintainer to debian ocaml maintainers
- set Uploaders to the usual 5 d-o-m DDs + John Goerzon our latest
fellow d-o-m DD

- removed useless README.Debian files
2003-09-28 - Sven Luther <luther@debian.org>
meta-ocaml ( unstable; urgency=high
* Removed ocamltk from ocaml-libs since ocaml no more provides it, and
no other package in the archive knows about it anyway.
* NMU upload since this need to happen quickly, it is blocking
ocaml 3.06-21 and we need to make place for the 3.07 packages.
