I'd say the general development community.

The people with the general knowledge might indeed be the ones, that
follow this particular mailing list.

I'd be very reluctant to make the framework team into a general code
leadership team, though. That's explicitly *not* what it has been
designed for and the way it is elected and the people are recruited
doesn't give them a lot of authority for this matter. It's also not what
they signed up for.

In my opinion we do not have an official leader or leadership team for
matters of general code and development related topics. This has been
the case since Alan stopped doing this job. If the community feels like
we should get such an authority back, we need to communicate this and
find a way of establishing such a team. This is too important to just be
assigned as an additional duty to an existing entity.
