Out of curiosity, what was tedious to maintain there?
One thing that's come up in both Mirage and XAPI is to have a script that 'splices' a released package from one remote to another. That would let us upload stable cuts to a working remote, and then move them over to opam-repository. Would that sort of thing help Ocsigen as well?
