Vox Pupuli – The community behind Puppet

Puppet is the most widely used configuration management solution. The software is provided by Puppet Inc. but most of the components come from volunteers. How do you organize >110 volunteers and how is the community structured? How to effectively manage 170 git repos and regularly released software without disregarding semantic versioning? And the most important question: What do you have to do to get a 1kg Box Haribo sent to you?
