I agree, but there is still useful information to be had. A
categorization that comes to mind is:
complete + NO active development: This is what I am looking for. A
tool that works.
complete + active development: This is also what I am looking for. A
tool that works, but may get better.
NOT complete + active development: Maybe worth contributing to; maybe
worth checking back later.
NOT complete + NO active development: Probably abandoned and probably
not worth looking at. I very rarely find an abandoned project that is
worth anything to me.

The problem is not "source code: yes", but "documentation: no". So,
- documentation: good. I can see what it does.
- NO documentation: I'm not even sure what it does... is it worth
spending any time figuring it out?
