Oh , packagers packagers packagers .. Erlang:

Option A: chop up core Erlang into various modules and give them clever names, so that using Erlang starts out as an exercise in figuring out what isn't installed yet while common Erlang commands, API, and project builds fail wildly. Probably because upstream ships core Erlang as a holistic environment, not a mincemeat of separate projects.

Option B: Deliver Erlang and its runtime as the upstream project delivers it, so that 3rd party applications and tools Just Work(tm). Takes a bit more disk space, probably even one whole entire megabyte! gasp

Apparently the Fedora / Red Hat folk think Option A is the Way to Go .. and it sucks. Perhaps it is part of the Holy War against vendorization? "Everything Must Be An RPM With A Myriad Dependencies On Other RPMs" .. which in the Erlang world results essentially in: fuck you and your release build tools with their "fancy" (as in: it actually works) upgrade tooling.

SUSE goes for option B, and bless their hearts for that. They also package a bunch of optional add-ons as well as the GUI components separately, which makes sense as those are all optional.
