We are still working on the license terms before opening the project, but if you can give me your github account name I will send you a link.
Wariness is understandable -- this works on very dirty data.
Once you are added to the project you can look at our test cases in:
to see samples of the type of statements that it parses.
We haven't had a lot of time to put into this project, so our hope is to find collaborators who can help us move forward on improving it and adding some capabilities. We are currently using it production to find the earliest and last years held.

Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] Interest in serial summary holdings parsing?
"Interest" might be less appropriate than "wariness"... but sure. My
institution (UCLA) is one which contributes holdings to these projects. I
haven't done any 866 parsing in a long time, but have written (perl) code
to fix 85x/86x sequencing problems in the LHRs we generate for OCLC, so I
know my way around our holdings records.
