It's answered on the website. As they have stats for each user,
cheaters may modify the code to get better stats while the result may
then not be useable for the project (false positives could be resolved
by a verification step, but false negatives not, and giving the same
WU to multiple people to have a statistical confidence would slow down
the progress a lot). A lot of the code is actually open source, but
not all. They refer to projects which they use.
Also think about the fact that this project comes from a medical
background where you have a lot of closedness, intelectual property,
regulation and liabilities. Personally I consider the fact that this
project (started in the year 2000) is producing open source code at
all already as a start of an evolition in the medical business (yes,
there are other more open source projects in this field too).
