Re: Queue Service, next steps


I agree with this. Unless there are significant, obvious advantages to
Erlang I would suggest we stick with C/C++.

Please bear in mind the long term maintainability of the openstack package.
One of the attractive features at the moment is that there are not
significant pre-reqs to set up the environment and most mass market
environments can support it.

Using C++ would not significantly change this situation, whereas using
Erlang may create some more difficulty further down the line.  Anything that
makes porting/rebuilding more difficult needs to be carefully thought
