Dear list,

Unless a new maintainer steps up, the Camlp4 project will soon be
abandoned. In order to help distributions, we will soon do a 4.08
release which will be the very last release unless someone takes over.

You can find more details on this post:

Many thanks,

Jeremie

We killed off camlp4 in Fedora 31:

  https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/devel@lists.fedoraproject.org/message/G2JBIWB423ECYGBXZ3QCPR7NQ66XGXTU/

ocaml-gettext was the one which affected most packages, but I have
ported it to use Ast from compiler-libs.

Another dependency I didn't expect was LablGL.  What happened to that?
A number of games depend on it, and it depends on camlp4 in what seems
to be a fairly fundamental way.

Rich.
