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[1].

(b) Upstream totally unresponsive, despite repeated appeals.

(c) Nothing else in Fedora requires it.

(d) There are alternate ways to do image processing.


[1] We fixed one today, then discovered another one which is
still not fixed.

Fedora now supports 79 OCaml packages (the OPEN alternative to F#)
