Currently we are in the process of setting up a eV legal entity (similar to KDE: http://ev.kde.org/) to manage the finances, voting, and membership.
An 'eV' for 'eingetragener Verein', in the German law, translates to a voluntary organization; a group of individuals who voluntarily enter into an agreement to form a body (or organization) to accomplish a purpose. The organization has members.
During FOSDEM 2008 in Brussels, Belgium, a group of founding members physically gathered to get the paperwork going.

Openembedded Developers are people who have write access to the git repository. Due to the nature of OE, there are many developers, and each one tends to maintain a section of OE. A list of maintainers can be found here. See OpenEmbedded Developers for a list of current developers.
