I don't know too much. From what I have read, it seems that the money dried 
up with the .com crash, The $800,000 allocated for development never 
materialized, and the project head left for greener pastures.

Some of the projects that won the SC design competition have moved to 
SourceForge, where they show some life 
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/roundup/, 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/scons/). The big thing, from what I know 
(which is not much), is that the promise of almost a million dollars of 
federal funding for this project seems to have evaporated.
