They can look at the code; and decide if there are bits of if that they
want. They can decide that there are big enough chunks with clear enough
interfaces that they can be integrated into their work.
Or they can decide that it's too hard and that it'll be easier to just re-write.
Or they can decide that the features aren't sufficiently compelling.
Probably what's going to happen is that very "theys" will differ in their conclusions and some of them will go off in various directions. Some of the code will be merged; other bits won't --- some will be buggy and some bugs will be discovered and fixed during the merging process.
There will also be those who spend more time whining and pontificating than actually code or even reading code.
