OPAM 1.1 changed the repository format sufficiently that an OPAM 1.0 client can 
no longer read a 1.1-format repository.

Therefore, the transition to OPAM 1.1 also involved setting up a new 1.1-only 
repository, which we put at https://opam.ocaml.org.

In order to migrate people from the old repo to the new one, we also added a 
'repo' file that can issue a redirect when a 1.1 client connects to the old 1.0 

So the summary of all this is that you should be using OPAM 1.1, and only with 
opam.ocaml.org.  OPAM 1.0 is now deprecated.  I don't think we've done a 
particularly good job of communicating this on the OPAM website though, so I'd 
quite like to clarify that.  In particular, if someone was using 
opam.ocamlpro.com via a non-HTTP remote (e.g. git), then the repo redirect will 
not kick in.

Which packages are you blocked on atm?  Sylvain just fixed forge.ocamlcore.org, 
which also went down last night and broke some packages.
