[erlang-questions] Using erlang from the master branch

Hello,

I use the release folder, eg.

export PATH=$ERL_TOP/release/powerpc-unknown-ose/bin:$PATH

git pull origin master
git clean -xfdq
./otp_build all -a
(cd release/powerpc-unknown-ose/ && ./Install -minimal `pwd`)

and then if you are feeling daring just do

git pull origin master
./otp_build release -a

whenever you want to have a new master or scratch it and do a full rebuild.
