David has done some fantastic work and has been keeping me up to date  
on his progress. With his help, I will endeavour to incorporate the  
most useful changes into the main branch.

I'll be making announcements in the Google group (http:// 
groups.google.com/group/bunny-amqp), as well as on GitHub (http:// 
github.com/celldee/bunny). If you want to contribute to Bunny or  
comment on what you would like to see in the next release, please see  
the project page in GitHub for the appropriate links.

Sorry if this discussion is not deemed pertinent to this mailing  
list. I have copied it the Bunny mailing list, so discussion can  
continue there if need be.
