Description Guillaume Horel 2011-11-15 00:02:15 UTC
New version from a different repository since the original upstream seem to be dead. Also quite a few fixes to the ebuild (added an example useflags, and allows for bytecode install only)

Reproducible: Always

The original version was released by Olivier Andrieu who seems to have stopped working on it. The latest version of his code can be found here:
Markus Mottl is already maintaining quite a few ocaml packages here:, so his version might be the safer bet going forward.

gsl-ocaml-1.10.1 ebuild

Upstream renamed the package to gsl-ocaml. The version number tracks the version of the gsl library they're using. The build system was moved to oasis, so the ebuild now uses the oasis eclass.

WONTFIX because package has been removed
