Okay, so we have 2 c / c++ people for routing help request too (my C is better 
then my C++ though), what about other languages?

I think that just using the list for help requests probably is best, last time 
there was an issue I was planning on fixing it and Dennis beat me to it (before 
I even started looking) so just sending things to the list seems to work well, 
otherwise we will need some complicated dispatch mechanism for help requests to 
reach the proper persons.

I think that we just need to stimulate sending out help requests more. Every 
now and then I go on a bug hunt in bugzilla and find many bugs which are 
usually fixable within the hour for someone with the necessary skills and 
willing to do the job.

If this encouraging of asking for help leads to too much noise on this list 
then we can start a fedora-devel-help list where people prepared to help others 
like me and Dennis can subscribe too.
