He doesn't trust any of the people who want to work on it to touch his code.
He has made two or three other people committers but they lack either time
or interest in working on it.  In my personal interactions with him, he's a
control freak who wants to personally vette all the changes that go in.

This fork has been years in the making but if you want to see that yourself,
you'll need to read the python-dev archives for the past few months and
distutils-sig archives for the past few years.
