I'm using Linux Mint Debian Edition, and using Synaptic to search for 
"rebar" only finds the Erlang plugin for Vim (because it mentions rebar 
in its features comment).  I also tried command-line apt search rebar - 
and got nothing.

I then tried the same search on an Ubuntu 12.10 machine using Ubuntu's 
software sources gui, and still got nothing.

Hmmm... searching in packages.debian.org finds hits only in jessie and 
sid - not squeeze or wheezy.  A search of packages.ubuntu.com only shows 
it under Raring (13.04).
