My own opinion is that any Erlang package manager relying on GitHub for whatever more than hosting a simple Git repository is doomed to fail. Feel free to disprove me through making one.

Companies make money around Erlang, if they want such a thing, money will need to be thrown at it for the infrastructure, there is just no way around it. If an index should be, the applications going into the main one are going to need some level of validation, otherwise it’s just a garbage bin which language zealots will use to tell the world we have 66,000 packages available.

Validation means testing, continuous integration and all that entails. GitHub will not help you here.
