Adding additional files to a Mix release tarball

Hi there,

I’m trying to build a Mix release version of the Distillery AWS deployment example.

Right now, I’m stuck trying to add a service definition file to the tarball I generate using Mix release. The documentation even alludes to this being possible in their example for release assembly steps. For whatever reason, I cannot find a good example of how to add a custom file or folder to the tarball. I tried using the :path variable in the release to create a folder under the release path, but that didn’t seem to work.

Any pointers or tips for what I’m doing wrong? Thanks!
