Would something like having team leaders for different areas help?
Something like a wiki page with a list of team leaders (with area and
availability) that people can look at. I know that a lot of new
triagers (and even experienced ones sometimes) find it hard to know
who to contact/ask if they have a problem with a bug. They can also
get guidance from them. I try to do this with MOTU Science and have
had pretty good success. People ask me, "What can I do?" and so I get
them to a list they can work on or a specific task that needs to be
done. This way they aren't overwhelmed by "Just fix everything" or "Go
find a bug to work on". If they need help or have a fix ready to
upload then they have a contact they can go to. This would obviously
take a little more effort on the part of the team leader but in the
end I think the can get better results because the activity is more
focused rather than a more or less random approach.

Just my $0.2
