[edit] With GMF users

You can help other people who are using GMF by contributing to the forum http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/16/ . If you don't like the forum, you can use org eclipse,modeling.gmf newsgroup which is another way to access the same info.

[edit] With GMF developers

For specific topics, the BugTracker is the preferred way to interact with project committers. But if you have more general questions, you can follow the gmf-dev mailing list and ask you questions here.

If you are interested about the release engineering of GMF, the good place to ask is gmf-releng.
