I guess it would be nice to know why they abandoned it - and
ask if any of them would be prepared to rejoin a restarted project to
complete it.

Is there still a web site for it?  Any other information - like how
complete it is, etc?

I could get interested - if there is a little more information to go on.

Picking up 100,000 lines of non-working code with ZERO other information
would be a daunting prospect. Picking up 2,000 lines of code would be
a waste of time (easier to start again and make your own decisions).

It would just be nice to know some more.
