The PSL lives at github and has three committers.

https://github.com/publicsuffix

Anyone can send in a pull request and they have a process to decide
what to accept. I agree they do a pretty good job but it is a tiny
project run by a few volunteers. They do not go looking for changes
beyond tracking what's in the root.

Keep in mind that the purpose of the PSL is to manage cross-site
cookies in web browsers. If it works for anything else, it's a
coincidence.
