 Update shells/osh
 Add new maintainer. Thank you J.A.
 The following is from PR #40006:
 I would like to maintain this package if that is acceptable.
 Thus, I added myself as MAINTAINER.
 Changed files: DESCR, Makefile, PLIST, distinfo
 Changes between osh-20080629 and osh-20081122 which affect the osh
 package on the various pkgsrc platforms are described below.
         * Added a case for DragonFly BSD (uname -s == DragonFly).
         * Fixed a bug introduced in osh-20061230 where the shell
           incorrectly handles an unescaped terminating backslash (\)
           character at the end of string when the shell is invoked as
           `osh -c string'.  In this case, the terminating backslash
           causes the shell to incorrectly read from the standard input
           at the end of string.
           For example:
                 % osh -c 'echo Hello\'
                 Hello to you!
           This example should instead do nothing and exit w/ a zero
           status.  For `osh -c string', an unescaped terminating
           backslash should effectively turn string into a no-op.
           Now, it behaves as expected.
         * Changed the "oshall" target to only build osh since the fd2,
           goto, and if utilities are now built into the shell.
         * Changed the "install-oshall" target to only install osh and
           its manual pages.  This includes the fd2.1, goto.1, and if.1
           manual pages since they are not fully documented elsewhere.
         * Renamed cmd_index() to cmd_lookup(), and changed the algorithm
           from a linear search to a binary search.
         * Added a base reallocation multiplier to glob() to reduce the
           number of realloc()s required for very large argument vectors
           while allowing the first malloc() to be a relatively small
           allocation for up to 126 matching file-name arguments.
         * This is a new file for the integrated shell utilities.
         * Added a new `-e' command-line option to fd2 to simplify
           redirecting all conventional output to the standard error
           as diagnostic output.
         * Integrated the external `fd2', `goto', and `if' shell
           utilities as special built-in commands to improve shell
           performance.  Also, added `echo' as a special built-in
           command.  Osh executes each of these built-ins in a subshell.
           Consequently, the I/O for each can be redirected as before,
           and the argument list for each can be the result of a call to
           glob() as before.
