Peter is certainly one of the most active current contributors to the 
scheduler! And the list goes on: here is the list of the 71 people who 
contributed to the scheduler recently (based on the git log which covers 
the past 2 years):

 Nick Piggin, Con Kolivas, Suresh B Siddha, Christoph Lameter,
 Oleg Nesterov, Linus Torvalds, Peter Williams, Kenneth W Chen,
 Steven Rostedt, Srivatsa Vaddagiri, Mike Galbraith, Chandra Seetharaman,
 Thomas Gleixner, Heiko Carstens, Robert P. J. Day, Paul Jackson,
 Matt Mackall, Kirill Korotaev, John Hawkes, Jack Steiner, Andrew Morton,
 Andreas Mohr, Andi Kleen, Al Viro, Zachary Amsden, Tim Chen, Shailabh Nagar,
 Satoru Takeuchi, Renaud Lienhart, Randy Dunlap, Peter Zijlstra,
 Paul Mackerras, Olivier Croquette, Nigel Cunningham, Nathan Lynch,
 Miguel Ojeda Sandonis, M.Baris Demiray, Martin Waitz, Martin Andersson,

 Borislav Petkov, Bibo Mao, Benjamin LaHaise, Arjan van de Ven,
 Anton Blanchard, Andreas Steinmetz, Alexey Dobriyan, Akinobu Mita,
 Adrian Bunk.

and there are countless others from the 10 years not covered by the git 
log, so the list is far from complete.

Furthermore, here's the 'toplist' of number-of-authors-per-source-file 
list of linux/*/*.c files (which covers most of the core kernel source 
files, based on 2 years of git metadata):

                kernel/sched.c: 72
               mm/page_alloc.c: 60
                     mm/slab.c: 55
                 kernel/fork.c: 54
               kernel/sysctl.c: 47
                  mm/filemap.c: 42
                kernel/timer.c: 42
                  kernel/sys.c: 41
                   mm/memory.c: 40
                   fs/buffer.c: 39
               kernel/module.c: 38
                 kernel/exit.c: 38
                     fs/exec.c: 38
                  net/socket.c: 36
               kernel/signal.c: 36
                   init/main.c: 36
             block/ll_rw_blk.c: 35
               fs/binfmt_elf.c: 34
                    mm/shmem.c: 33
                    fs/namei.c: 33

the scheduler is one of the most diversely and most actively hacked 
subsystems in the kernel.
