Have you tried this on RHEL 7?

We (the qpid community as a whole) do indeed care about fedora, debian, ubuntu, 
windows, android and the success of qpid generally on any platform where people 
may wish to run it, and we are eager to help anyone who want's to make it run 
an these or any other platforms. We (specific contributors to qpid) may lean 
towards particular distributions and spend more of our time on those and that's 
ok too. We (the red-hat leaning contributors in qpid) may have a short term 
focus on a particular RHEL release at times, but we always have a strong 
long-term interest in fedora because it is an excellent predector of what is 
happening next in RHEL. Have you tried this on RHEL 7?


Cheers,
Alan.
