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. When posting about a specific distribution, please start the subject line with its name between bracket: [FSO], [2008.9]...
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.
The blogs of openmoko fans and developpers are aggregated at planet.openmoko.org. Only posts tagged openmoko are syndicated. The planet is multilingual. To get your blog added, please open a ticket on the admin-trac (you will need to open an account first).
