The chipKIT trademark is registered by Microchip Inc. Digilent has signed an agreement with Microchip (as have I for my Fubarino boards, and several other companies/individuals) to use the chipKIT trademark on products that they make. The developers on the chipKIT project come from all over, and all contribute various talents towards the betterment of the whole project.

As far as being maintained and added to - just look at our GitHub repo - https://github.com/chipKIT32/chipKIT-core While it's not like we have hunderds of developers constantly contributing code, there are a number of the chipKIT devs who are doing significant work on the codebase pretty much constantly. Just today there was a big PR sent that we will all be reviewing.

We are teaching classes on chipKIT, and developing new boards in the chipKIT family, and there is a lot of activity on the project.

That being said, we have way more 'wish list' items than we have developer hours at this point, so if you're interested in contributing some of your work to the project, we'd gladly welcome it!
