Seems like they've given up as the last update was sometime last year.

I can assure you they're VERY active; the lack of a website update is unfortunate, but doesn't indicate anything more than that they haven't focused attention on that; they meet very frequently and recently hosted an extremely well-attended working luncheon to brief Senate staffers on the status of the VSE.
