webOS was open sourced in September 2012. The Ports team has been working on the port since then. After Alpha 2 was released back in June 2013 and the team was running into too many issues with LunaSysMgr (mainly graphics acceleration, but also lots of legacy code), they decided to rewrite it from scratch using new technologies (QT5, WebKit2 etc). Progress for this has been solid and steady every week, but since it's a volunteer project, real life often gets in the way.

A lot of things already work and lot still not... Various developers have been working on different bits (Core OS: QT5, WebKit 2, Luna Next, Kernel, integration of parts from other projects (Ubuntu, Mer/Sailfish/Jolla). App rewrites in Enyo 2: Contacts app, Memo app, File manager, PDF app, Preware 2, CalDAV/CardDAV sync etc).
The team is still looking for a developer who could work on a phone app and/or messaging app for example
