I've been reaching out recently to a number of people about helping out with various initiatives. It is a bit messy, without Drupal having a well-defined hierarchy of who to go to to volunteer for various things. I think people also need to understand that high visibility also creates high prominence. A lot of new people don't feel comfortable directly contacting someone highly "visible", assuming they are being a bother. I've spoken with a number of other people who would also like to volunteer, but are not coders, so they aren't sure where they fit in. Everyone points to documentation, but I feel there should be other options. Not everyone is comfortable writing public documentation, but they might be excellent project managers, organizers, designers. It appears Drupal needs some, well, sheep herding.
