Well I'd vote for include - like all the OTP libs.

I'd say something like xmerl really warrants its own project. Perhaps when
things get big enough or well established enough they should be bumped up a

I'll also contribute a bunch of stuff from our cvs repository. I've had a
few things in mind to release for ages but never quite polished them up to
contrib standard (I'm thinking erlang cvs driver and repository consistency
checker, and a .rel, .app.src to finished build tool, as well as a bunch of
other random stuff).

I do think this will need some active management from someone who gets a
kick out of organising things (i.e. defintely not me!) To be useful for the
widest audience we really need to avoid it becoming Junkerl.. Like should we
have a new project called
random_build_tools_which_are_all_useful_but_dont_work_together?! I guess the
project mailing list is the place to sort these issues out.
