Your impression is correct Mike, this mailing list of for people hacking on
WordPress, writing code for plugins and themes, discussing bugs and patches
etc. (and the regular how-to-do-it-best flamewars)

There is a WordPress group on LinkedIn which does a lot of what you are
looking for, people asking for recommendations for plugins, themes, etc. as
well as asking general advice.

You will need to have joined LinkedIn first (they do free memberships), and
the group is simply called WordPress

if you are not a member.)
