Mahara is developed by a world-wide team of programmers, translators, designers and enthusiastic amateurs. Many individuals and groups have contributed to Mahara so far.

This second list is of security researchers who have found security issues with the infrastructure of the Mahara project which can include all the websites (mahara.org, wiki.mahara.org, manual.mahara.org, langpacks.mahara.org, reviews.mahara.org), the servers that host those websites, and any auxillary tools (such as launchpad for bug tracking, gitorious for git hosting).

A large part of the development on Mahara would not be possible without the funding from institutions and organizations.
Pre Mahara 1.5
The University of Glasgow have funded several pieces of work for us, including View Templates, part of Import/Export (the HTML export is thanks to them), and various bug fixes.
With JISC funding we were able to add import/export functionality to the Mahara e-portfolio system, as part of the 1.2 release. This work was sponsored by the University of London Computer Centre, University of Glasgow and JISC Cetis.
A collaborative group in the State of New Hampshire funded the ability to submit Mahara Views for assessment in Moodle, through a grant from the New Hampshire Department of Education.
The BScE at the University of Luxembourg funded the development of the tag cloud, improvements to the feedback function in the 1.2 and 1.3 releases, and bug fixes for Mac servers.
Birmingham City University funded the initial development work for Collections and Plans (new features in Mahara 1.3). They also supported the development of locking down blog posts and files that are used in submitted views.
