I don't have an answer of my own, but I think this is an important issue
for Ubuntu.

As a tentative first step I have created


As a place holder for discussion of communication, and a place to air
grievances and/or suggest solutions.

There is no bug tracker for internal community communication bugs, as far
as I know ;-)

This is not directly on topic for -devel of course, but I have sent it in
answer to Matt's post.

If this is seen as a good idea, I will post to -users and sounder.
