PyInstaller is currently maintained by Hartmut Goebel, Martin Zibricky, David Cortesi and David Vierra.

The project was founded by Giovanni Bajo (, @giovannibajo).

We would like to thank Gordon McMillan who wrote the original Python Installer, and William Caban for his initial development and maintenance effort without which PyInstaller would not exist today.
