The comps.xml group for ocaml is pretty weird. It has some mandatory
base packages, which are OK-ish (although there are some notable ones
missing such as ocaml-camlp4-devel and ocaml-labltk-devel).
Then it has a strange set of optional packages, which is a tiny subset
of the 89 OCaml packages in Fedora.
I've never used comps.xml and don't really know what it is good for,
except I know of the existence of some graphical tools which consume
it. Richard Hughes's appdata seems like a more complete concept for
people that want that kind of thing.
