It's a noble undertaking.

Personally, I expect it to follow the same path as most open-source finance initiatives. It's gonna lack the actual bits used in practice - e.g. they are have already implemented a binary option as analytical formula which is a waste of time and planning to add Black Scholes for barrier options. It's also likely to be overcomplicated since it's built by engineers as opposed to practicing pricing quants.

This said, I will expect it to have some useful bits of code that I will get to steal.

It is not stealing actually, but learning the patterns. Coding is full of that.

if NN/AI had personality, it would be offended by this act of cheating...

Agreed, looks pretty academic to me and geared towards standard optoin pricing models.

What's really needed in the public domain is a good low level fixed income tool kit, which you can then augment with FX and equities stuff and on top of that a properly functionng risk and pnl engine. There is nothing out there, it's such a desolate situation...
