I can relate to that, but the OTP team is facing issues with patch
management, as explained by Bjoern-Egil, where extracting lib/* into
sub repos seems like one solution. To be clear, it's not a proposal by
the community but a solution to a problem planned to be investigated
by the OTP team after 17.0 is released. It's a non-trivial change, and
has the potential to reduce the out of the box functionality, so that's
why I opened the thread.
