The .rel file is used if you want to make a 'release' or a 'target

into a single tar.gz file for deployment.  You would only need this  
for distributing software to other machines, other customers or for  
embedded deployment.

Look in the OTP System Principles manual.  This section is specific  
to .rel files:
