I'm a bit confused.

The above text looks fairly delegation-specific to me.
What am I missing?
To be clear, I could totally see reaching out to those people with
non-delegation questions, just as I sometimes reach out to you or
various other people in the project. But thatwould be purely informal
or would fall under some other delegation (for example talking to
members of the debconf committee about DebConf).
