[erlang-questions] thoughts on rebar bundled with Erlang/OTP

 From your suggestion, it appears to me that the problem you are trying to  
address is awareness. i.e. people don't know that tools like rebar/sinan  
exist and either re-invent the wheel or suffer silently.

Perhaps a special section on erlang.org could address this. A page devoted  
to 3rd party developer tools with categories like IDEs, packaging, etc.  
Tool developers could then fill out a form with a summarised description  
of their tool, the type of license and a link to their repository then  
post it under the relevant category. Something like the current links page  
(http://www.erlang.org/links.html) but less general, more descriptive and  
user-generated.
