Developers wishing to contribute to and extend Resource Central software have these additional resources:
- public forums - Dell's TechCenter is the principal place to discuss development of Resource Central software.
- announce mailing list - The 'announce' mailing list is a low-volume, read-only mailing list reserved for major release and security announcements.

Bugs entered in bugsrc are assigned priorities by Resource Central staff according to the following meanings:
- P1 - Critical
- A customer escalation or a secuirty bug
that interrupts all current items.
The customer's name should appear in the summary line as

- P2 - Escalated
- An escalation from a significant prospective customer.
A Quest Support 'CaseID' must be associated with this bug, or
a Quest sales representative must endorse it.
The prospective customer's name should appear in the summary line as

- P3 - Next release
- Bugs that must be fixed for the next scheduled release.
- P4 - Next release, slippable
- Bugs that may be fixed for the next scheduled release.
