I started writing a long rant about this but then I realized that it's going to only derail the conversation so I've redacted it. Despite my reservations about the workflow, I really appreciate the work Chet has put into bash and am grateful for it.

Jospeh mentioned that we should trust maintainers, so why not trust
that bash in this regard lacking a VCS?  And wouldn't it have been
nice if Bash now had ChangeLog entries? :-)

Those are not equivalent arguments; nobody's mandating that the bash project uses a VCS and in the way that's considered best practice in the larger FOSS community.
