[Openstack] Setting up Folsom - CentOS 6.4

I have been asked to setup Folsom for the first time.

I am currently following the documentation found at
there are two AMQP messaging solutions referenced.  One being
referenced in RabbitMQ, and the other being
qpid-cpp.  Based on comments I understand that I can just change nova.conf
to use qpid and match the rest of the instructions as closely as possible.

But using the same base documentation I have already configured and tested
glance as much as I can at this stage and looking at
/etc/glance/glance-api.conf it references a rabbit_host and qpid_host with
defaults configured.

So my first question is, is it right to assume that you need only one
messaging tool?  Or would most Folsom installs use both RabbitMQ and qpid
together ?

The other question I have is do people see significant differences in the
ease of getting Folsom up and running if you are using Ubuntu vs CentOS?

>From what I can see at the moment a lot of the Issues identified with
Folsom have been identified and marked as fixed by openstack dev's but the
issues still exist in the EPEL rpms.  Are there other repositories that
people would recommend?

As this is a new install I am guessing that a lot of people would recommend
that we install Grizzly rather than Folsom, but currently this isn't an
option, so thank you for any insight you care to share.

Have a Good day :)
