Re: Opam installation woes

Frederic just pushed something which seems to fix the regression, so I've made 
a new release of opam (0.3.2). Sorry for the mess, my plans for the next days 
is to make a 0.4 release (which will improve support for dev repositories) and 
set-up some automatic regression tests to avoid this to happen again.


I don't have anything to test
