Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1470753
Versions of RabbitMQ and Erlang in RDO

I have come across an issue in Sensu  as part of an implementation through opstools-ansible .
However, I am currently unable to reproduce the issue anymore, perhaps a fix landed in Sensu or elsewhere in the meantime.
I've attached a script to install a reproducer of our implementation.
In the issue, the users and maintainers seem to claim that the problem would be caused by outdated packages.
RDO Ocata currently provides Erlang 18.3.4 and RabbitMQ 3.6.5:
The latest versions currently would be Erlang 126.96.36.199 and RabbitMQ 3.6.10.
Would it be worth considering proactively updating Erlang and RabbitMQ for the Pike release ? We're currently shipping the same version across all supported releases.
For what it's worth, it looks like Ubuntu does not package RabbitMQ and Erlang as part of Ubuntu Cloud Archive. Ubuntu Xenial ships with RabbitMQ 3.5.7 and Erlang 18.3.
I did attempt rebuilding v19 in CBS in the past:
which failed on missing deps.
Trying with 188.8.131.52 again with Haikel's patch to disable wxwidgets, emacs, examples:

AFAIK there are numerous SSL-related improvements in Erlang v. 19. As well as in v. 18 but that's a moving target, so I'd propose to upgrade to the latest in case of using v. 18 (latest is 220.127.116.11).
I believe upgrading to v. 19 is fine as well, and we'll do the same for the next RHOS as well.
Regarding RabbitMQ. We ship ver. 3.6.5 with few extra patches (mostly backported from higher versions). 3.6.5 was the latest version with old build system (3.6.6 uses different one - based on erlang.mk shell scripts).
