This story has not yet shown up anywhere in the western press--at least not that I can find. If what they have done is automated rendezvous, and it is _not_ part of a manned program, then that is a significant development with potential weapons applications. In short, it's a big story that nobody has caught onto in the western trade press. Nothing in Aviation Week, Space News, Spaceflightnow.com, etc.
I'm not totally surprised that it has not shown up yet. They usually wait for some kind of statement or confirmation from a western source, such as USAF. That's a weakness of a lot of American reporting--nobody notices until there is an American angle to the story, such as a statement about what this means.
