Thats all well and good, but if the 'right tool' isnt being looked at

as you want, but if jo blogs the user doesnt know to look there, all
your going to end up with is a bunch of people asking in the mail list/

That's why a central repository of links to various community resources 
is needed - a centralized pointer, if you will.  This is how I direct my 
communities to forums/newsgroups, wikis, and other resources (downloads).

Could be one approach to look at this, to pre-define (to the degree
to which this is possible) what the various resources (mailing list,
wiki, and (possibly) a blog are being used for?

My suggestion:

- Wiki for tutorials, links to other online resources (maybe to
ImageMagick for processing exported bitmaps, to give but one

- Blog for things like: Hey-I.just-did-this-cool-image-what-do-you-
think type of stuff,

- the mailing list for everything else (maybe with a short, friendly
reminder: Please, take a look at the wiki first before posting to
the list ;-).
