How to Contact Us
The mailing list is located at email@example.com . The archives for it are at http://lists.debian.org/debian-x. Most of our communication happens via these resources, as well as the bug tracking system (all bugs against the X Strike Force packages are mailed to the mailing list).
We also have an irc channel on OFTC (which irc.debian.org points to) in #debian-x.
