Hi Erik,

looking at
http://debian.glondu.net/monitor/ocaml/ocaml_transition_monitor.html I
get the impression that the Ocaml guys need to re-build everything when
a new Ocaml library comes out, but not when just a dependency was
upgraded. Is that right? If it is so, we have an excuse due to our
slightly more complicated procedure.

Also, how do they get it in 24 – don’t they have to wait, for each level
in the dependency tree, for the former level to have been built on a
buildd, upload signed by a buildd admin and them moved to the archive
with the next mirror push?
