[MirageOS-devel] Decompress and Digestif are now on the Mirage organisation

Hi everyone,

Thanks to Romain[1] and Eyyüb[2], there are now two more very interesting 
libraries hosted on the Mirage organisation:

* https://github.com/mirage/decompress: a Pure OCaml implementation of Zlib. 
Could provide a drop-in replacement to Camlzip -- very useful if you want to 
trade some performance vs a better portability (and hopefully safety too).

* https://github.com/mirage/digestif: efficient standalone hash implementations 
(SHA1, SHA224, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512, BLAKE2B) in C -- although there are 
plans to have portable implementations in pure OCaml too (contributions are 
welcome) for supporting all mirage backends. Very useful if you want 
nocrypto-like hashes without having to depedend on libgmp.

In the short term, I plan to use these in ocaml-git, Irmin and DataKit :-) I 
hope you will use these libraries too!
