Yes, but the ODAR is from 1 March 2018, so should be more accurate.

Maybe someone at NASA can update this site?

I think Aeternitas, Ceres, and Libertas are the "Virginia Cubesat Constellation".  Some others could be added later.  There have been several revisions on the earlier ELaNa ODARs.  I saw CAPSat has their paperwork started but it didn't specify the launch yet.

The Virginia Cubesat Constellation has three cubesats from ODU, Virginia Tech, and UVa.

That is for ELaNa 25, not ELaNa 21 which is flying on OA-10. Does anyone know which mission ELaNa 25 is flying on?

It looks like they have split the "old" ELaNa 25 and create a new ElaNa 21, which is not yet included in the cited document.
