Hi David,

In marketing, over the last days, I've been working, as a personal
initiative, on trying to establish contact with Linux distributions,
to solicit contributions and collaboration on graphics/artwork,
notably. The initiative has been not unsuccessful, with helpful
responses from Ubuntu Artwork, notably. Today, I also had responses
from Debian people, too. And some response from Gentoo people, as
well. I'm certain that when I start on Fedora Core, there will be good
results, too.

But I have no clearly-appointed people to liaise with and report to
within TDF, so it is now difficult for me to capitalize on these
results, and to deal meaningfully with the people/groups who respond
to me.

So this is where there are problems in respect of the work I'd love to
contribute to the project...

Great to see your enthusiasm. To me it looks however, as if you more or less missed the step to find out where your initiatives could land, before starting with them ;-)

As explained by others already: many things are being worked on, but we cannot do all at once, now, immediately and full size from the first moment. So maybe some very good ideas must just be shifted some time (not forgotten), or need some more preparation, to get the attention they deserve or the right prepared ground to grow?

I see Sophie explained about Documentation.
There also is something else that is due rather soon: information about the features in the stable release of LibreOffice (proabaly December). And we have the idea of short interviews with new developers, to publish on our website.

Kind regards,
