Minetest is developed and maintained by a group of volunteers called the core team, consisting of a bunch of people who are trusted to keep Minetest progressing in good condition. The core team is formed of people who have made great contributions to Minetest. Contributions are approved if two members of the core team agree on them.
The core team is best contacted on
#minetest-dev @ irc.libera.chat.
