Zend Technologies is actively involved in PDT development via it's committers and non-committers who contribute significant features.

There's stable group of passionate PDT contributors organized in PDT Extenders Group. They actively report bugs, adopt and test PDT, contribute patches via Eclipse PDT Github repository and bugzilla.

We have 3 active committers with vary amounts of activity as all of them are only part time working on PDT directly.
