Right now, the standard Nitrogen setup creates a release which includes Nitrogen code. This is great for development, but when it comes time for upgrading, it'd be nice to be able to take advantage of the actual auto-release upgrade system built into Erlang.

This is where a generatable release comes in.

Essentially, this would set up a rel directory with a default reltool.config file. Then include a make release rule for the Makefile, and in the end it would create an actual release for the project to do a more seamless hot upgrade than relying on sync

In short: from the nitrogen repo:

make rel_whatever creates an initial development environment for working, then from that "development release", make release would create the actual production-level release for the destination machine.
