To answer your first question, you only need one AMQP messenger, RabbitMQ
and qpid are simply two different options. RabbitMQ is the default, but
RedHat tends to lean towards qpid (for instance RDO, openstack.redhat.com,
uses qpid). Because RabbitMQ is the default, you'll need to change
rpc_backend in files like nova.conf and quantum.conf, for instance:


I don't know of any other repos for Folsom and CentOS other than EPEL. For
Grizzly+ they've moved to http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/openstack/ ,
but there is no Folsom there.
