It's the other way round. It looks like the cacherl folks simply copied 
the code that *I* wrote (and first released as part of RabbitMQ 1.1.0 in 
August 2007), removed all copyright and licensing notices, and added 
themselves as the author.

What's the best way of fixing that and point 1 above? Do we simply need 
to tweak debian/copyright? If so, could you please make those changes 
and send the amended file back to me? I can then make sure it gets 
incorporated in the next release.
