Has there been any news on the investigation on what went wrong with the failed pump module brought down on STS 135?

I know the PM is in a state of disassembly at JSC (pic attached), but no word on the failure investigation yet.

Thanks for the pic Pete; been wondering about the PM myself

Most propably the failure investigation results will be announced by a report posted into NTRS. The pump itself isn't a NASA design so very detailed analysis could be proprietary.
