Doc, it may be that it's because I don't have high enough resolution, but I'm 
not seeing the sort of problems you describe.  You need to talk to someone 
with deeper knowledge, as I'm sure you could get some improvement.  Your best 
bet is to try IRC - install konversation which sets up freenode as default 
server, then type in '/join #kde'.  There are always devs online.  You don't 
always get an immediate reply if people are busy, but usually you get one 
before long.  One other thing - if someone does start a conversation with you, 
include their name in your reply - it attracts their attention.  HTH
