Unfortunately, the fallout of their audit process has been that many 
trusted developers left the project.

For me, the main problem is that there are ReactOS developers who think 
that examining Windows assembly to write ReactOS code is a proper way to 
do things.

I'd avoid their code if I were you.

If the same people "came up with" the code in question, the license 
isn't relevant.

IMO, the only legitimate thing to use would be their test cases, and 
there's only a few of those as far as I can tell.
