One of my favorite words applies here:  "disintermediation".   The
best thing we can do is to remove extra steps and layers and people
between the user and the person who can give the user what they want.

General rule that applies for everything from trademark requests, to
mailing list, to product questions, to project questions, to interview
requests, to almost anything:

1) If it is not too sensitive and the person does not mind making the
request in public, then ask them to send the request to the ooo-dev
list.  Note that it is not necessary for them to subscribe to the
list.  Anyone is able to post to it.

2) If the question is sensitive, personal, confidential, etc.., then
ask them to send it to the ooo-private list.  Again, they do not need
to subscribe.  Anyone can post.

There may be more specific ways to report specific issues, but the
above two paths almost always work as a good first step.
