Look at the svn logs to see the list of active developers.

The problem is that doing releases is work and work that few or none of
the people working on FFmpeg feel motivated to do.  Releases also tend
to generate the expectation to be supported with bug fixes.  I think the
motivation to support releases is low as well.

That said, I would personally welcome releases, especially if somebody
volunteers to do the work.

Do you have a timeframe for when you wish to do a release?
