Hi Florent,

Apologies for the confusion, we've recently automatically generated the homepage from the archive url for all packages "maintained" by OCamlPro. In this case, it was clearly not the right thing to do, and I am very happy to give you back the ownership of the package: I'll change the homepage of imagemagick to point to your homepage and I'll add you new release. Also, if you are fine with this,  I can change the maintainer contact address to yours (we've initially imported the package, that's why we were the maintainer and we are happy to help if there are some problems with new releases, but we really want giving back the credits to the original authors / maintainers of packages we've imported).

Best and sorry again for the confusion,
