I'm more on your side of the fence than the developer side.  While I've been
saddled with some real work projects that haven't allowed me time to do
anything Ubuntu server related in the past 6 months, when i did have time, I
found the developers helpful.

That being said, I've found this team is more of a server contribution team
than a server support team.
