I got looking into this because of these review requests:

And I've come to the conclusion that we need some kinda ocaml
packaging guidelines.

Interesting with regards to this are:
http://docs.pld-linux.org/ocaml.html
http://pkg-ocaml-maint.alioth.debian.org/ocaml_packaging_policy.txt
Maybe you could start an add something to the fedoraproject wiki, for
example a Ocaml SIG. There has also been some interest in this by
Richard Jones <rjones redhat com>.
Yes an ocaml sig probably is a good idea. But as said I'm only the reviewer here, so to those interested, go ahead create a sig. Maybe Nigel Jones will want to join you too, as he is the submitter of the package review requests linked to above.

Either way we need to put down some guidelines, since the current ocaml packages aren't packaged properly (when judging them by the debian / PLD guidelines).

I can help get the guidelines approved but I'm not an OCaml packager so
most of the work will be up to you guys.  Discuss the guidelines, either
put something under /wiki/PackagingDrafts/ or ping me with a copy that
you want to propose and I'll do it.  Then it would be tremendously
helpful if one of you could make it to a Packaging Meeting where the
Guideline gets discussed by the Packaging Committee.  That way you can
field questions immediately instead of me being a go-between.


Okay,

The proposal I mailed to the list yesterday is now available here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/OCaml

If you can let me know where and when the FPC meeting happens, then I can see if I can attend (times in CET please, as a european I'm not used to doing timezone calculations)

Regards,

Hans
