  Description     : packager for distributing OCaml software

Topkg is a packager for distributing OCaml software. It provides
an API to describe the files a package installs in a given build
configuration and to specify information about the package's
distribution creation and publication procedures.

Topkg is needed as build dependency for new upstream versions of
existing OCaml packages, for instance cmdliner. The topkg
upstream sources do also contain topkg-care, a command line tool
that helps with various aspects of a package's life cycle.
However, topkg-care has various build dependencies, among them
cmdliner. Therefore, the ocaml-libtopkg source package won't
build topkg-care. If we need topkg-care in Debian, it should go
into a separate source package with identical upstream tar ball.
