Well, the projects are distinct, at distinct organization. OWL-S API is 
from the MIND lab at the Universtiy of Maryland and is certianly 
available for download:

We actually have a fairly active mailing list, and the API is being 
used, as I said, by Fujistu in their Task Computing project.:

Not the OWL-S VM, but I've recall reading papers about their 
experiments. Since the OWL-S VM is essential a transliteration of the 
CMU "execution semantics" into Jess rules, it wouldn't be all that hard 
to replicate.

For the OWL-S API, see above. We welcome code or documentation 
contributions. We've not moved it to a semwebcentral or sourceforge 
like environment yet since we've had no strong interest from external 
developers to be a co-maintainer. But we could certian give write 
access to our SVN repository as an intermediate step.

For the VM, well, pressure the CMU folks! :)

Another possibiilty would be to to use a Golog interpreter.
