He called it "code laundering"


As I understand that is incorrect application of the term.

defunct open source project


The defunct part is irrelevant. What matters is what the actual license is. The most liberal type of that license says basically 'do whatever you want just don't cry if it fails'. If that is the license then it does in fact explicitly give you the right to port it and thus it is not 'laundering'.

There are many variations of 'open source' licensing though. And some would fall into that category depending on what you intend to do with the code.
