[erlang-questions] Erlang/OTP R15B02 has been released

Fred, the new option is there to allow to build a target structure which
only contains "your" applications, intended to run with an existing
erlang/OTP installation. You should specify your incl_cond options as
before. The resulting target structure will contain a lib directory with
applications not found under $OTP_ROOT, and a releases directory with rel,
script and boot files. No erts, kernel, stdlib, etc...
Note that the option is experimental in R15B02.
Regards
