Just a quick update – posted to the WSSSPE site (https://wssspe.researchcomputing.org.uk), facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/wssspe/?ref=br_tf), and mail list (http://lists.researchcomputing.org.uk/listinfo.cgi/wssspe-researchcomputing.org.uk):

1. The WSSSPE1 report is moving along – see https://github.com/danielskatz/WSSSPE  If you want to contribute, contact a section lead.

2.  The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation is in the progress of providing funding that will support three WSSSPE activities:

a. extended versions of WSSSPE1 papers in the Journal of Open Research Software (JORS) – details to be sent to WSSSPE1 paper authors fairly soon

b. a software-development focused workshop (WSSSPE1.1) at SciPy 2014 in Austin in July – details to come…

c. WSSSPE2 to be held at SC14 (if accepted) – again, details to come…

3.  We’ve added a few things to the WSSSPE web site, including some reference material and a wiki, for anyone who wants to use it to discuss WSSSPE-related projects/ideas.
