Yes for basic questions like "how to do this or that". When discussing
more complex stuff like "is this the right way for fixing problem XYZ
which popped up on SPARC", or "attached diff should fix problem ABC",
fpc-devel would be probably more appropriate.

Basic hints for working with our SVN repository can be found in our Wiki

I propose to check with the 2.0.4-rc2 sources. You can get these from
ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/beta/2.0.4-rc2/source/, or directly
_using_SVN_ (not WWW browser) from
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpcbuild/tags/release_2_0_4_rc2/ (or the
most up to date sources from the fixes branch available via SVN from
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpcbuild/branches/fixes_2_0/ (or
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/branches/fixes_2_0/ for just the main
part without docs and stuff necessary for release building).

Yes, there is. The initial revision in SVN should correspond to 2.0.0 (we
used CVS before) - you can use SVN to checkout revision 1 of the fpc
repository. In addition,
ftp://ftpmaster.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/dist/source-2.0.0/ is available
