There's not, and there could not be a 'management' to drive the development process. KDE could not force a 'stability release' among its developers.

Evolution doesn't require discipline, or any kind of organisation or overview, or even any notion of purpose or intent, in order to produce complex and high-performance organisms.

FOSS development progresses in a process described as a "meritocracy", which in some ways is quite similar to the processes of evolution, which in turn has been summarised as "survival of the fittest".
