Correct.

Sorry for that, the rel file in ebin was is not used anymore. I removed it now.

This is my first serious erlang project, and project structure changes
as I grasp erlang patterns and best practices. I try really hard to
conform to expected structures, and if you have any advice, I'll take
it very seriously :-)

> why not use reltool.config if you're using reltool

I started exploring reltool today and for now I have no luck with the
tool, so I didn't commit my .config file to master yet. But you can
see current state of my .config file from previous emails.

You mean "erl files", not "beam files", right? That would be es_tests
and es_releasing, as far as I'm aware. Those are helper modules which
are not intended for production.

Right, rebar. Yes, I hear rebar is an excellent tool, but
unfortunately, most of the time I code on a WinXP machine without
admin rights and cut off from the Net. Last time I tried compiling it
on this machine, it failed, and I just went with systools, since it
was less trouble. It might be the right time to look into rebar again.

Thanks for help!
