I tried to install drom via opam and got told that it conflicted with
core_kernel:

  ⊘ remove  core_kernel      v0.14.1        [conflicts with
opam-file-format]
  ↗ upgrade opam-file-format 2.1.0 to 2.1.1 [required by drom_lib]

but `opam show core_kernel` lists no dependency on opam-file-format`, and
`opam show opam-file-format.2.1.1` just says

  depends:      "ocaml" "dune" {>= "2.0"} "alcotest" {with-test}
  conflicts:    "core_kernel"

with no indication as to why the conflict.

Hi Martin,

  I have a 4.09.1 switch with both core_kernel.v0.14.1 and drom.0.2.0
installed with no conflict. Did you try to install with dev-deps ?

Best regards

Then, I don't understand the fix in the opam-repository:
opam-file-format does conflict with core_kernel when they are included
in the same executable, but not when they are just in the same switch.
Conflicts in the opam-repository are for installation conflicts, not
for linking conflicts, no ?

I tried on both 4.09 and 4.11 and couldn't get it to work. Also I couldn't
find a `--dev-deps` flag, did you mean `--deps-only'? That didn't work
either. I'll wait for the fix David Allsopp mentioned and try again.

I have submitted `ez_opam_file` to opam-repository, a compatibility
library for opam-file-format supporting all of its versions. Once it's
accepted, I will submit the corresponding versions of `drom` and
`opam-bin`, so they should be installable in any switch.
