What makes you think that? If you read through the bug-bash list it's pretty obvious that Chet is still firmly in charge and actively developing bash as always. It had a new major 5.0 release fairly recently as well, which make it run scripts quite a lot faster.

Chet himself informed me of that.  But it seems he's been a one man show for 26 years!   It seems a bit of a fragile situation.

Apple has plenty of in-house manpower and expertise to take over zsh development if the need should ever arise.

How would that work in practice?  I mean a 'takeover' wouldn't seem to be desirable but a contribution of resources  might be. Who has the last word in these things?
