Not quite.  Kostis still has a claim on both the name and the code,
and he usually oversees a couple of (undergraduate) student projects
each year that do some experiments in the compiler parts.

But if other people submit high-quality patches that fix bugs or add
useful improvements then I'm sure those patches will eventually find
their way into OTP.
