Evening list,

A part of the work is submitted on malone. Here are the source packages
which can be rebuild without any dependency issue (with malone bug number):

cairo-ocaml https://launchpad.net/bugs/31087
cameleon https://launchpad.net/bugs/6680
camlimages https://launchpad.net/bugs/31089
camlzip https://launchpad.net/bugs/31090
mlgtk https://launchpad.net/bugs/31091
ocamlgraph https://launchpad.net/bugs/31092
ocamlnet https://launchpad.net/bugs/31093
ocamlodbc https://launchpad.net/bugs/31007
syslog-ocaml https://launchpad.net/bugs/31094

Debdiffs are attached to each malone bug, and bugs have been assigned to

The other source packages concerned by the ocaml transition, which need
the previous packages to be fixed are netclient, ocamldap, ocaml-http,
pxp (depend on ocamlnet) and ocamldbi (depend on ocamlodbc). I'll take
care of this package tomorrow (need some rest for the moment ;) )
