The software used in the E8 project is readily available, and it looks to be more-or-less pure C++. There is only one mention of SAGE, and that is in a directory string: "/data1/sage".

I think that they used sage.math, not SAGE.

Still, there is a bunch of hype that could be misleading, but I don't think it's a big deal. "Any publicity...", as has been often observed.
