[opam-devel] Packaging guidelines

Just a couple of quick questions regarding packaging guidelines:

1) Is there a standard way to specify that a package depends on version 3.x
   of another package, besides the obvious {>= "3" & < "4"}?

2) To avoid uncontrolled growth of the repository, is there a policy regarding
   the deletion of older packages?  If, for instance, I am about to release
   version 1.2 of application package Foo, and versions 1.0 and 1.1 already
   exist, then the oldest (version 1.0) could be kicked out of the repo.
   In the case of libraries, extra care would be needed to make sure no
   broken dependencies would arise, of course.

Thanks in advance for your time!
Best regards,
Dario Teixeira
