It seems like the new packages list on the main page https://ocaml.org/ is broken. It sorts packages by inverse alphabetical order instead of most recently updated or newest first.

That thing breaks every now and then, it's just so annoying!

It is likely due to the use of an older opam-lib with poor error handling and the merging of slightly unexpected content in opam-repository. It is very difficult to understand the issue without access to the machine or at least logs.

For what it's worth, I am using the (unreleased) 1.3 branch now for the linting of Camelus, which has an unchanged repo format from 1.2, but some of the improvements of 2.0, in particular regarding error handling. Also, I included some lint-related backports.

Maybe it would be worth releasing opam-lib 1.3 -- although I would prefer to ask for migration only once, directly to 2.0.

@dsheets could you send your ssh key to @Chris00 (or to me...) ; well, if you want access of course.
