Builds OK and rpmlint is silent.

I believe the license should be "LGPLv2 with exceptions" as the LICENCE file
describes a set of circumstances under which one of the LGPL clauses may be
avoided.  This doesn't render the software non-free or anything, but it's
still something which needs to be noted.

I need to get a ruling on the duplication of the documentation files which I've seen on some of your packages.  The review guidelines state explicitly that you should not have duplicates in your %files lists and this will usually terminate the build but for some reason duplicating %doc files doesn't.  I've asked for some guidance on the fedora-packaging list.  If I don't see anything negative about the practice by tomorrow, I'll go ahead and approve this.

* source files match upstream:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* ocaml templates and guidelines are followed.
* summary is OK.
* description is OK.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
X license field doesn't quite match the license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
