A change has been made to the Installation Guide for Trove recently ( http://docs.openstack.org/icehouse/install-guide/install/yum/content/trove-install.html (http://docs.openstack.org/icehouse/in...) ), which replaced rpc backend instructions from Qpid to RabbitMQ, stating that Qpid was Fedora specific:


However, there are users that say that they used Qpid for CentOS and had no problems:

What does manual should recommend? Qpid or RabbitMQ? My own research showed that Qpid might be better:

I'm going to abstain saying which one is better. However, I'd like to make it really clear that QPID is not Fedora specific and it works perfectly on many different distros. What that review says, though, is that there were "Fedora specific docs". The patch recommended using rabbitmq as the reference broker for the docs but it doesn't mention that rabbitmq is the best broker out there nor that it should always be used. You're free to pick whatever broker works best for you.

But this patch removed ALL reference to Qpid and does not offer any choice. Should it rather provide both options?
