[erlang-questions] Where is the Erlang bug-tracker?

The top of the page says

  Erlang programming basics with examples
  By Carl McDade

That creates the impression that you're claiming authorship. 

Looking at your "author" page, it says 'Carl McDade has written 351
posts for Hiveminds Magazine'. At least some of those posts aren't
written by you in the usual sense of "written". The first post on
the list is this one:

  http://www.hiveminds.co.uk/?p=35974

it's a copy of the gen_udp man page, except you've removed the last two
lines, which are

  Copyright © 1991-2009 Ericsson AB

You're going out of your way to avoid giving credit where it's due,
and that smells bad.

Aside: Neither Erlang nor its documentation falls under the GPL.
