Sorry, but wouldn't it be better to rename this package as "erlang" 
or "erlang-otp", and format his version as "11B_5" or "11B.5"?
(the first "R" stands simply for 'Release' according to FAQ 3.2 
http://www.erlang.org/faq/faq.html )
It seems next major version will be R12, so maybe it isn't advisable 
putting version number as built-in in the package name.
