How do I talk to someone on the project without having to signup for anything?

There is no one person who listens to questions. You will need to at least subscribe to the user mailing list. You can unsubscribe just as easily.

Things seem to be scattered to multiple sites. Is there one place for everything?

Yes and no, there are several sites that make up all Apache projects. Each serves a specific purpose. The first one listed below is the one place that will point to everything else as needed.
