> * This raises the main question: how important is OPAM 1.1 support, how many users will encounter these issues, and when can we safely drop it ? I haven't heard many complaints, but the users hit by this aren't the most likely to give feedback (but maybe to turn around).

I think the priority is to update https://github.com/ocaml/opam/wiki/Distributions

If really all the distributions are still using 1.1.1 (and even 1.1.0) we cannot drop support for 1.1. If most of the distributions have updated to 1.2, would maybe make more sense to see what we can do to help upstream maintainer to update to 1.2 instead of bandaging 1.1 damages.
