I'm not aware of anybody currently working on this, other than that old branch that you linked to.
I don't know know too much about VirtualBox, but since a libvirt VirtualBox driver exists, I suspect it would be straightforward to add support, it's just that nobody happens to be working on it.
You might want to try following up with the opscode guys, since they are active with both Vagrant (which uses VirtualBox) and OpenStack.
