Hi Maxim!

I got around to trying it your way, I think.

I have the manifest file `manifest.scm`:

~~~~
(specifications->manifest
 '("erlang"
   "emacs"
   "emacs-org"
   "emacs-erlang"
   "emacs-ob-erlang"))
~~~~

~~~~
~~~~

~~~~
executing Erlang code block...
append-export-all: Symbol’s function definition is void: string-join
~~~~
~~~~
~~~~
