bazel build //clwb:clwb_bazel_zip --define=ij_product=clion-latest
bazel build //aswb:aswb_bazel_zip --define=ij_product=android-studio-latest

We may be able to accept contributions in some circumstances. Some caveats:
- Before opening a pull request, first file an issue and discuss potential changes with the devs. This will often save you time you would otherwise have invested in a patch which can't be applied.
- We can't accept sylistic, refactoring, or "cleanup" changes.
- We have very limited bandwidth, and applying patches upstream is a time-consuming process. Large patches generally can't be accepted unless there's clear value for all our users.
