I'm concerned about folks having trouble getting in touch with us due to outdated information (and I think a list accessible by more than one person is more appropriate than a single email address/phone number). I've had several (three) folks get in touch to say that they have tried to inquire about sponsorship and have not heard anything back.

Right, I know what is in SVN.  The missing instructions are what to do 
on the openlayers.org server.

Yes, instructions on that wiki page would be preferable to email.  And 
full paths are preferable to relative ones.  And any detail about users 
would also be useful (you mentioned that previously things had to be 
done from your home dir - not sure if this is still true).
