Most of RabbitMQ development happens in the open under the rabbitmq GitHub organization. See our GitHub guide for an overview of our development process and our Contributor repository for practical guides, for instance, on how to use Bazel for RabbitMQ development.

Please use GitHub Discussions for questions, discussions, investigations, root cause analysis, and so on. Questions or discussions filed as issues will be closed and converted to discussions.
