In OOo forum case no developers answered any questions on users forums, 
so low number of developers can not do this.
The developers answered usually on users mailing list.
The volunteers, moderators on forums mostly power users of OOo, with no 
developer background.

Some volunteers, as I, worked in OOo projects as QA volunteers after 
some time if he has a will.
I not provided any code to OOo, in Base QA I was the first reviewer of  
submitted bugs, looked around in bugzilla for similar problems, or 
earlier fixed bugs, tested problems in available environment. My work 
helped OOo Base developers to work only on "real" bugs.
If I found problems during answering to questions on forum, and it 
proved, sometimes submitted bugs in bugzilla.
