Summary:
monthly OCaml programming contest

Detailed description
Organize a weekly/monthly OCaml programming contest around small subjects. A little bit like ICFP contest but smaller and OCaml oriented.

There should be 2 categories: expert and beginner.

We should give points for:
* lightning (first answer),
* thunder (second answer),
* most concise,
* fastest code.

It should take ~24h to solve. We could give problems around 2 topics: classic subject in FP, subject around the use of an existing OCaml library/program (ocamlgraph, lwt, bitstring...).

A sponsor can pay for small prizes once a year (books -- maybe dedicated).
