Initial developments come farther away than 2010, and the proposal itself was written from the end of 2008 and during 2009.
Some of the Intellectual Property bringing this project to reality, has been filed even earlier than those dates.
Practically speaking, the project will conclude after the final review, planned for September 2013. After that, the project will turn into a commercial product, and launch date has not been announced yet.

There is a section on the website with links to publications and papers, and also a set of deliverables that are of public access. You can download them by going to the label "Resources" on the top of the website. They are ordered by year.
A new section to download a community dataset will be included, but a user & password will be necessary to access that private part of the website and they will be provided on request by email.
