I actually think of github.com/ocaml not as an "official" blessing
(whatever that means), but as a place where repositories used by
the ocaml.org infrastructure can have a home.

In this case, I'd like to see all the editor tools centralized on
the GitHub so that we can clone them to regularly publish a Vagrant
VM with all the build tools installed by default.  If Tuareg is the
correct Emacs editor mode of choice *at the moment*, then it's
appropriate to host there.  This should be a separate discussion
from future fixes to Emacs-mode (which is, of course, important as
well, but shouldn't block the Vagrant release).

Anyway, Vim mode is easy ("use Merlin!"), so you'll all have to
educate me on the Emacs story over at:
