I spoke to Jeff who runs the support department.  What we usually do for
commercial support is that two people in the customer's organisation are
nominated as support contacts.  So, for Zope, I expect the Zope
Foundation Board would nominate one or two people as the support
contacts for using Launchpad.

The single point of contact for checking the quality of the bugs
imported into the demonstration server can be a different person.

Right, the ability to have a bug filed on, say Zope 3, but then later
retargetted to ZODB.

I'm fine with this.  Once the programming work is done, and we have a
good mapping of the bugs' statuses in the Collector to the bug statuses
in Launchpad, it will be straightforward to move the data from other
Zope-related projects that use Collectors.  So, the big issue there is
seeing if this is a move that is supported by the community of people
developing on these projects.
