I agree with this 100%. For what it's worth, forums.debian.net is being run
by Jeroen van Wolffelaar and I've been trying to pitch in a little bit over
there too. It might not be official, but at least it's got some DD presence
currently and it could certainly use more. Fortunately, it's still small
enough that it doesn't have to deal with the problems of scale, so I don't
know if it'll end up any better than the ubuntu forums.
