[ops] [kolla] RabbitMQ High Availability

I read this with great interest because we are seeing this issue. Questions:

1. We are running kola-ansible Train, and our RMQ version is 3.7.23. Should we be upgrading our Train clusters to use 3.8.x?
2. Document [2] recommends policy '^(?!(amq\.)|(.*_fanout_)|(reply_)).*'. I don't see this in our ansible playbooks, nor in any of the config files in the RMQ container. What would this look like in Ansible, and what should the resulting container config look like?
3. It appears that we are not setting "amqp_durable_queues = True". What does this setting look like in Ansible, and what file does it go into?

Does anyone have a sample set of RMQ config files that they can share?

It looks like my Outlook has ruined the link; reposting:

After a talk on this ml (which starts at [1]), we endup building a
documentation with Large Scale group.
The doc is accessible at [2].

Hope this will help.
