Hello Vlad

the CEAN framework as been rewritten to be much more easy to deploy
I use it daily now to handle R12 B13 and R14 at the same time. it
supports full OTP and compiles 250 other packages (500 declared).
i need to free 1 or 2 days to finish some tasks on it and publish it.
it has been tested on Mac Linux(x86/amd64/arm) NetBSD FreeBSD OpenBSD.
it allows to deploy erlang installation (minimalist/custom/full) in few
seconds, or starting from scratch with full compilation.

I can publish it quickly now, and also provide you a full R14B03 binary
repository. CEAN 2.0 will run the same way old CEAN using erlang command
line and also provides a shell interface.
it also allow you to generate your own custom erlang automatic installer
(self extractable shell script) so you can deploy a minimalist erlang VM
with your custom code on any system you need, without any dependency, in
few seconds.

we're in discussion with Yurii Rashkovskii (erlagner.org) and Martin
Logan (erlware.org) to provide community a common packaging environment
by the way. we'll try to merge our efforts to finally end up with this
packaging issue.
