Hello OTP team

I'm working on updating erlang-mode at Marmalade Emacs package
repository [1], which has a very-very-very old version of erlang-mode

This resulted in a minor fix to erlang-mode:

   Make erlang-mode more compatible with package.el

   Package.el  and Emacs  package  repositories (like  ELPA or  Marmalade
   place some requirements onto packages which are uploaded to them. This
   commit does  minor cosmetic  changes which makes  it easier  to create
   appropriate package file for those repositories.

available from

git fetch git://github.com/gleber/otp.git make_erlang_mode_elpa_friendly

and viewable at:


Since it's a minor fix it is based on maint branch.

If someone from OTP team would like to have administrative access to
erlang mode package at Marmalade, I'd be happy to add him/her as an
owner of the package there.

Best regards,
Gleb Peregud

P.S. There is some bug in Marmalade mode, so erlang mode package can
not be properly uploaded, but the bug has been reported to Marmalade
maintainer and appropriate fix has been submitted there.
