Shammah Chancellor is indeed no longer working on Bitcoin ABC but is still working on Bitcoin Cash. An August newsletter lists Cashweb Keyserver and BCHan.!topic/bch-dev/WGWqXjbA158

He is certainly not a BSV supporter. ;)

One of the creators (the creator?) of is Jason Chavannes ( He is BSV-friendly but he definitely should be on the list.
