Hello again,
Your patch seems to fail a testcase:
reltool_server_SUITE, exclude_non_existing_app
with reason:

reltool_server_SUITE.erl(1371): SPEC: {error,
                                        "Illegal library \"*DIRECTORY*": no such file or directory"}

Not matching actual result was:
	{error,"Illegal library \"*DIRECTORY*": no such file or directory"}
	{ok,["foobar: Missing application directory."]}
