Basically this is an alternative to the official Blizzard server matchmaking. The game works P2P or something like that, so this is an open source matchmaking system, the backend stuff. Blizzard abandoned the game (StarCraft:Remastered, the graphical update to broodwar) before implementing some features (like 2v2 & 3v3 matchmaking). Also they could shut off the servers at any time. So this is a way that the community could control matchmaking instead if it gets robust enough. I've heard the networking has been better in some non-official versions too. Cool project if you're into the game. Helps that the game is old so it had LAN without having to have an official account or anything.
