Erlang project dependency management/build tools

I am quite new to the Erlang world and I am trying to develop an OTP
application (with releases in the future). I am looking for a tool
that will let me manage the dependencies, build process and release

I have found Rebar & Sinan (+ Faxien) so far but it seems Sinan
doesn't do dependency management(?) and Rebar obviously lacks

I would like to know the opinion of the Erlang community on this
matter; I am looking for a simple tool that will fetch external
dependencies (or otherwise let me put them in a directory),
build/test/generate docs for the project and help with the OTP release
creation process.

Thanks in advance.
