Does bugzilla counts as a Project Management Platform?

Does bugzilla counts as a TODO list?

The primary source repositories are in Mercurial at

We also mirror the source code to gitub at

Some official documentation lives in the source code repos, and we are
happy to take contributions to those docs in the same way as for for
code contributions.

Other official documentation is on the web site.  That content lives in
a private repository (it might not be that way for ever, but there are
reasons it is that way now).  But we're very happy to receive
suggestions and feedback on the web site.

If you want to contribute a new area of documentation, probably the best
way is to put it up on your own web site or blog.  Then, if it makes
sense, we can discuss linking to it from our web site, or even taking it
as a contribution to our web site.

The RabbitMQ developers all read this mailing list, and we're happy to
take questions here.  It's up to individual developers whether they are
available on other channels.

We aim for frequent releases, rather than committing to particular
features in particular releases.

There hasn't been one yet.
