I sympathise, because I think the documentation could be more clear.
There is a list of people with "push" privileges and a little bit of
why they gained that privilege, or at least from whom. There's also a
list of their interests, which corresponds somewhat to which modules
they're "in charge of".


Note that there isn't a listing for syntax or builtins. Perhaps that
should be remedied, but it'd require a volunteer. Further, now that
Guido has abdicated, the process for PEP approval is uncertain.
