Leave the mail for TDF oficials as

+1, I would even add the following: are only
available for official contributors and even they have to request
it (I don't exactly see the automatic need for, say, a code
contributor to have such an address).

I've a different view whom beeing part of the community:
What's about one passing the (upcoming) DVD to his neighbour plus
giving him first support but never appearing in the official
"contributing system" here?


So to me there are also advocates and promoters who are very happy
without an email address or a special status.

    Friedrich may i add that all i have see on other FOSS projects is
that mails are given to big time developers to the project, not users
or fans of a given project.

"All" is a big word here ;o)). I was Member of one of the largest FOSS
communities (think of three "O" two upper case, lower case the last) for
many (some 7 or 8) years, where it was obligatory to get a mailadress
just to have an account for some (by far not all) community resources
(issuetracker). So You did oversee at least one.. And the best: there
was no way to get rid of it!  No way to delete the account :o)).

Seriously I think in respect of our (the successor of the above) project
size we have to go our own way. And I continue thinking it wasn't to bad
to get "a member" that easy.
