Hi Sunkai.

rabbitmq-ha-test is just test infrastructure for the new HA feature. The 
actual HA code is in rabbitmq-server. If you build that from mercurial 
you can use HA, although there aren't really any docs yet. (Super-brief 
explanation: build a cluster, then declare a queue with an argument 
"x-ha-policy" set to "all". The queue will then be mirrored across all 
nodes in the cluster.)

If you're not comfortable building RabbitMQ from source then the 
simplest thing to do is wait, it will hopefully be released in the next 
few weeks. Documentation will be forthcoming at release :)

Cheers, Simon
