Yes, I know. That's why I'd up this question.

I'm not sure whether we should continue this talk in English (may be in
Russian in some other places would be better).

When I ask some questions in forums for programmers (forum.vingrad.ru for
example) I recieve answers in one or two hours (and at least in a day for
very specific questions). That's because: (1) my questions occur in proper
places; (2) there are many people there.

As to pay. I think that some of my question would be more helpful for
developers (as a feedback) then for me or for our group.

It's not difficult at all to organize forum. There are many linux forums so
it's enoght to coordinate efforts.
