- Anyone - anyone can submit a bug or enhancement request to Clojure once you have created a Clojure JIRA account
- Contributors - anyone that has signed the contributor agreement can supply patches or work on improving tickets
- Screeners - a smaller group of trusted individuals have been granted the ability to move tickets through (some of) the stages of the process, in particular the Triage and Screening activities
- BDFL - Rich Hickey is the creator and Benevolent Dictator for Life of what goes into Clojure. Stuart Halloway also has a special level of access and typically commits patches to Clojure.
