Multiple development orgs to develop one force.com package

The company I work for is building a managed force.com package.

I logged in to parter portal to create 2 test orgs - Partner Developer Edition (for development) and Enterprise Edition (for testing). All the other partner portal users (the developers) will also create their own development orgs. But I'm worried about how can we work on the same package using different org? How would we maintain/merge all developments done in different environments (objects, tabs, apex, vf, files, triggers, workflows, data, metadata etc) to a single dev org?

Can someone explain this with an example? How does package development take place, as I'm sure in all packages all the developers of a package have their own dev org. And then they merge the changes, and then after testing package gets released.

You can migrate your changes done in different developer orgs by using the force.com IDE or the ANT migration tool to merge all the changes into a single developer org. Other option would be to just make changes manually or use a source control tool for code.
