[erlang-questions] Erlang for Android release suggestions?

Hi all,

I have ported Erlang/OTP R15B03 to Android, to work with Scripting Layer 
for Android (SL4A). This involved some patches to the Erlang/OTP source 
and build scripts (configure, Makefile, etc). I also wrote the 
installation app to install is under SL4A. Access to the SL4A API is 
provided, but I have not tried all available functions. I have included 
all OTP applications except the ones that are only useful with a gui.

It is possible to use the interactive shell or to specify a .erl file 
(which will be compiled if not yet compiled) and run its main/0 function.

I have tried the port on some Android devices, and it worked on all of 
them. The device does not need to be rooted to use the port.

What would be the best way to release this to the public, considering 
the license of Erlang/OTP? Should I put the entire source on some 
repository provider, or just a script that will modify the original 
Erlang/OTP sources?

Regards,
*Erik.
