Sinan Build System

I have been working on a build system for erlang for some time. I have a working version that I have used. However, it has a couple of shortcomings that rendered it difficult to use. I done some significant work towards version two. I decided to make the source available via google code hosting anyway. There is a large amount of proprietary software and systems going on in the community right now and I wanted to be in the open from the start.

the source is here.

Its named after Ḳoca Mi‘mār Sinān Āġā one of the great architects and builders of the Ottoman Empire. I thought it appropriate to name a build system after him.
