The Carto style is maintained by Andy Allan aka gravitystorm:
https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto. The Carto design
is basically a direct copy of the older Mapnik XML design, of which I
don't know who wrote it. Apart from Andy, many people, including me,
have contributed to the Carto style. I have worked on the rendering of
roads, so if you like, I can help you in writing up the change. Just
keep in mind I don't know anything about cartography or design either,
I'm just good at typing out other peoples' ideas in a machine-readable
form :).
