Sorry. Thought about it but did not want to bother debian people. I'm
keeping the Cc:.

For now, I can try to be the contact point on the Ubuntu side. As I
said, I'm subscribed to debian-ocaml-maint@ so I can follow Ubuntu's
related request there.

Regarding the need of an Ubuntu dedicated developer for OCaml-related
stuff, for now I only plan to request on specific synchronizations. Time
will tell if this is enough or not. If not, we'll see if I can step in
as an Ubuntu developper, judging on my abilities and on the time I can
allocate to this task.
