I am happy to this that new people are using Erlang REPOS. We are 
progressing toward a new stable version. I have just released the 
version 1.3 beta 1, that contains the latest version of Erlang/OTP 
(R10B-6) and update version of various software.

See: 
http://www.erlang-projects.org/Public/projects/workgroups/repos/erlang_repos_1.3-b1/view

and for download:
http://downloads.erlang-projects.org/repos/repos-1.3_b1.iso.tar.gz

Please tell me if you need to add software or libraries that are not 
currently present in REPOS.

We would definitly need more contributors. One of the idea that I would 
like to implement is for example the addition of preconfigured Emacs 
modules (Erlang mode, Distel and Esense). REPOS would no include Emacs, 
but having a a config file on the CDROM, you could launch your version 
with an Erlang development properly configured.
Adding Eclipse and Erlang extension is another interesting option.
