I think the general rule-of-thumb is to contact the package author for problems with individual packages. Many package authors read this list, but there are probably some that do not. Sometimes problems with individual packages are actually bugs in R, but I would say that this is not usually the case. However, the package author is probably the best person to make this judgment.
