It seems to be focused on automating as much as possible and adhering to the DRY principle.

Looks like Adrian Holavity and Jacob Kaplan-Moss are the guys behind it.

Update: From the FAQ, the other Django developers are Simon Willison (whose weblog I've been reading for a long time) and Wilson Miner.
