You're on the right track by getting into IRC and posting on the mailing list! On IRC, it helps to ask a specific question and then wait about 8 hours for a reply, since the developers are in a wide variety of different time zones.
You can always ping me or one of the other core developers in IRC. I'm usually around during US/Eastern normal working hours, but I don't always pay background attention to the channel.
