I wasn't offended. I used to be able to do updates fairly regularly but 
because of my current work responsibilities (I do not work for rabbitmq) 
I have little time for my other hobbies (like fedora packaging).

So if there is any good soul with decent understanding of fedora 
packaging process and erlang/rabbitmq knowledge then I would be willing 
to pass it over to him/her.

Thanks Alexis for including me in the conversation, I admit I rarely 
look into this mailing list nowadays.
