Help the Symfony project!

As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.


Is there any new information about official page for boundles, like one for plugins for symfony 1.0-1.4?
Symfony2 is great, however I'm finding it very difficult to get answers to my questions, as well as finding good documentation for some more involved ones.

Especially when it comes to best practices or making sure I'm not inadvertently fighting the system to get something done.

Are there any concerted community efforts on the way?
What is the best admin bundle for this version? Someone is working on an official admin solution?
