Anyone can send patches.  If someone from Apple starts sending many
good patches, they'll get commit access in the ordinary way.

Taking over the project would require the consent of the existing
maintainers.  However, anyone can fork the project at any time for any
reason, provided they rebrand their fork (= not call it "zsh").

Apple can also help in other ways, for example, by assigning someone
to monitor zsh-users@ and answer questions there, to help with the
increased workload once their users are on zsh.
