Current Release Manager: Jürgen E. Fischer <jef[at]norbit.de>
QGIS Releases are managed by the Release Team (Release Manager and Release Assistants). Together with numerous contributors, they oversee timely, regular, stable releases of QGIS on the various supported platforms. The release team recruits and supports build managers to create packages for supported platforms and oversee the maintenance of the bug tracking system.
QGIS is being packaged for different type of operating systems. The people responsible for that packages are as following:
Current Technical Advisor: Marco Hugentobler <marco.hugentobler[at]sourcepole.ch>
The Technical Resources are managed by the Technical Manager and Technical Assistants. They recruit and support code maintainers and provide general oversight and guidance to the development effort.
Code Maintainers are responsible for discrete areas of the QGIS source code (core, gui, plugins, providers, tests) and ensure consistency and quality of code added into the git code repository.
The QGIS community resources are managed by the Community Team (Community Manager and Assistants). With numerous contributors they keep contact to the community, take care of QGIS events, documentation, GUI translations, and ensure smooth running of the QGIS.org online experience including web sites, blog, and mailing lists.

QGIS Press Material and its translations are managed by the Community Assistant (Press Material Team Lead) and supported by additional language specific teams. Information about current activities and the translation process are provided at the Press Centre.
A successful project requires many people to play many different roles. Some members write code or documentation, while others are valuable as testers, submitting patches and suggestions.
The number of Contributors to the project is unbounded. Get involved today. All contributions (adding code or documentation, fixing typo error, reporting issues...) to the project are greatly appreciated.
