Digium Core Asterisk Team
Digium employs a team of software development and technical professionals who work with the Asterisk open source project on a daily or weekly basis. Many of these individuals work on code all over the project but tend to stick to core support areas of the project. This team also maintains the documentation included with Asterisk and on the wiki. Any given day you can find many of these folks in the Asterisk IRC chat rooms.

Volunteer Maintainers for Extended Support Modules
There's no question that Asterisk is a huge project that interacts with a wide variety of devices over numerous protocols. As such, a number of Asterisk modules (typically labelled as extended) are primarily supported by the open source community. A number of caring, dedicated community members have volunteered to be the lead developer responsible for handling issues filed against these modules. Issues reported on the issue tracker against these areas will (most likely) be assigned to these individuals for handling.

General community contributors
Plenty of credit goes to a very broad community of contributors. As with most open source projects there are many contributors that submit a patch here and there or tend to be very active for a few months and then disappear. Regardless of how active you are the community as a whole certainly appreciates every single patch, page of documentation and bug report that is submitted. Asterisk has become what it is thanks to the contributions from every single contributor throughout the history of the project. Thanks!
