Not forgotten -- there's no way to do an atomic upgrade of the repositories, and so ocaml, camlp4 and then opam have to be rebuilt in sequence.  Since armhf takes around 2 hours to build, there's some downtime.  I'd been hoping that both versions would be published simultaneously, but apparently not.

OCaml has built, and camlp4 is building now, and OPAM will finish after that, so the OCaml 4.02.x/OPAM 1.2.x PPA should be operational again in a couple of hours.
