Yes and No. I’m the primary developer/administrator for it now and it doesn’t get much contribution from others. It is also supported by the Python infrastructure team, but there is only a handful of us and I’m the only person on that team who has paid time to work on that and the Infrastructure team is also responsible for many other python.org services.
