Why one would need an additional alias? Existing questions are sent to
general@ or dev@community or (please add here), and one in the superhero
role should timely answer them or facilitate an answer. [Complex question]
tag in the subject line should be sufficient, or just no answer to some
mail for 72 hours.

If titles are important, we can simply assign nice titles to guys who
answer to 10 of these complex issues.

Maybe some discussion on facilitation means can be useful to avoid calling
the guy impolite.

I have one particular problem to deal with. New projects which come outside
of Apache, cannot find Apache champion. The request is too wide to reach
someones ear. One possibe way to address it is to assign an eco-champion to
the new project who performs the project evaluation. The champion comes
from the Apache project of the same area. Sometimes we may end up with
community merges by going this way.
