I'm coming to a similar conclusion from the opposite direction.  A quick 
chat in #ubuntu-signpost lead me to start writing this:

Hopefully people will go to the wiki signpost first, and 
#ubuntu-signpost if they fall off the bottom of the flowchart.  If that 
happens, we can update the signpost with answers from every individual 

It'll probably take me a few days to add all the signage I can think of, 
and it would be great if you could add signs to resources you know about.
