This list is the main one [I think] for drscheme;  www.plt-scheme.org
lists them.
( you probably already know ; The scheme cookbook is also really a
good resource http://schemecookbook.org/ it has comments, but is a
wiki, not a forum )

A project tool has been discussed before;
I don't know if anyone has tried to whip something up?
I'm tempted to give it a go, but as the syntax checker makes it so
easy to open files as I need them, it has reduced my motivation.

You could try, the people on this list are *really* helpful.

Do you have 372? Submit a bug report via drscheme help menu?(I run
DrScheme for days at a time on osx with no problems)

This *is* the right list!

Do you mean autocomplete? The autocomplete function is built in;
ctrl-/ should activate it.
