[ocaml-platform] Is it taking too long for OCaml software to become 4.03-compatible? Would release process changes help?

I'm not asking anything. I'm only commenting on the fact that Sylvain said that the time response was not long. It wasn't indeed but release time is not the right time point to consider. The right time point to consider is the rc betas.

I personally don't care as I'm not interested in oasis. But many other programmer seem to use it so it's a pre-requesite for them to be able to work in a given release and if this doesn't happen during the betas then we get less testing. Regarding oasis' development model I'll let users of oasis decide on what is best them.
