Dear all,

The Docker containers in the opam repository CI [1,2] have all now been rebuilt to reflect the latest contents of the 4.08 branch as per Florian's message.  This means that your 4.08 CI tests will now reflect the bug fixes below, and so (for example) nocrypto should be installable now.

regards,
Anil
