I see you have developed a sharp eye for licenses on GitHub!
To be clear, I haven't checked wither this project has a standard license for non-commercial use, but software licenses are an exceedingly complex topic and people do themselves no favors when they make something open but with caveats.
One of the frequent complaints by the Free Software Foundation used to be (I have no idea if this is still the case) that "open source" is needlessly vague. Is it all the source or some of the source? Can I use it for anything? Do a I need a secret decoder ring to figure out what the developer was thinking? Also, the sharp edge of the DMCA wasn't that someone published how the internals of something worked, but whether or not you used it to undermine their (usually poorly implemented DRM) protection scheme.
Projects with standard licenses have (in my experience) remarkable staying power. They may not be the best or the fastest tool, but they tend to also follow other standards as well, while being reliable and transparent.
