I hope this does not sound too negative, but I'm not sure we would gain by
"blessing" tuareg as "the" ocaml editor mode for Emacs. The parallel
existence of caml-mode and tuareg-mode has been a long-time annoyance of
mine, because I don't see a strong justification for using either instead
of the other. In particular tuareg has had long-standing bugs that are
rather annoying, and I for one would be very happy to throw away any kind
of elisp-implemented approximation of the OCaml syntax, and use a more
principled approach such as Merlin+ocp-index to handle them (none of which
currently support syntax highlighting iirc., but that could be added to
I do think however that given the high number of Tuareg users, it is a very
good thing that dedicated souls such as Christophe accept the pain of
maintaining emacs modes. If he can be pleased by having tuareg repo under's
the "ocaml" community umbrella, I see no strong reason why not -- only I
won't recommend as strongly all of the software under the "ocaml" umbrella.
