The Community Updates article is updated at least twice a month by Michael Shiloh. Updates are also mailed to the openmoko-community mailing list, and major updates are also sent to the announce list.
You should ask for help on the support mailing list.
The openmoko community mailing list is perhaps the most active. As of July 2008, its volume amounts to dozens of messages per day. Openmoko people are there too.
Lots of Debian and FSO discussions among the pkg-fso team takes place on the Smartphones-userland list.
There is always a good group in the IRC channel #openmoko on FreeNode. If you aren't an IRC-er, you might want to review the discussions anyways:

Within the time contstraints of middle Europe, the Freenode channel #neo1973-germany is also active and members switch to english on demand.
You can also hang out in #openmoko-cdevel (the community developers channel) on chat.freenode.net if you have development questions.
Community site based on trac
The German Neo1973 community created a Trac-based web site with SVN version control for their community projects: http://neo1973-germany.de/ The most notable project is Zad, which consists of a GUI and daemons for GSM/GPRS muxing, GSM, GPS and more, written using Enlightment for smooth, smooth, fast, alpha-blended graphics and glib and dbus for daemons, but the actual code of the project is all python. And yes, you can even make phone calls with it (even without "echo").

Wishlist item: User's Manual
An User's Manual targetting a non-hacker audience has been started. I mean one of those small books you get when you buy a new phone. They are full of pictures, describe basic steps of phone usage and are translated into as many languages as possible.

Fradeve11: I give my appreciament and time to translate an user basic manual in Italian ;) very good idea!
