Just a note to say that I'm going to retire the package
ocaml-camlimages and ask it to be removed from Fedora.
(a) Series of security problems have arisen with the C code
for loading images.
(b) Upstream totally unresponsive, despite repeated appeals.
(c) Nothing else in Fedora requires it.
(d) There are alternate ways to do image processing.
 We fixed one today, then discovered another one which is
still not fixed.
