The transition to OCaml 4.02, the first one that revealed that Unison was dependent on the version of OCaml used to compile it, also revealed that providing such a compatibility package was not sustainable: it is not possible to provide in bullseye a version of unison compatible with the one in buster since they provide different versions of OCaml (and we don't want to provide several versions of OCaml in the same release, not just for unison). Maybe the best thing to do is to remove meta-unison from Debian. Depending on the old version is not possible, since it is meant to disappear when unison migrates to testing. Cheers, -- Stéphane
