In order to prepare the beta release of OPAM (which should hopefully be announced at the end of next week if everything goes well), I've been working on improving its command-line interface (which is currently a bit had-hoc). Thanks to the great Daniel Bunzli's cmdliner library, I now have a nice -- but incompatible -- command-line interface in the 'cmdliner' branch. The main changes are: * an uniform help interface, where all flags and parameters are correctly documents * no more -long-option, only -s or --long * 'opam remote' is still there for convenience but will be deprecated; use 'opam repository' instead * use of sub-sub-commands when necessary (ie. 'opam repository add') * use non-ambiguous prefix of sub-command instead of the subcommand (ie. 'opam repo' or 'opam rem') * AND: a nice 'opam --help' and 'opam <subcommand> --help' output I'm quite keen to get community feedback on this new command-line. Feel free to comment here, or to to use the issue tracker.

Sorry for spamming again on RTT (Run-time types for OCaml). This is just to announce an online trying version (obtained by patching the Try OCaml website).
