Most times the hover cards do a good job of ending after an appropriate amount of content, but on longer excerpts text gets truncated, often abruptly. (Example: The link to the flow extension at the top of this talk page.) This is opposed to just ending at a sentence boundary.
This wouldn't be so bad if ellipses were at least appended to the text, but in either situation it badly triggers the zeigarnik effect. This leads to clicking on the page to finish reading the excerpt... and then you've left the page and lost your original reading context.
As a designer/copywriter/programmer, this just stuck out at me -- I don't know if it bothers anyone else. Overall though, I think hover cards are a great idea. The project page states that the goal of the feature is to provide readers with an excerpt so that they "can make the decision about whether they want to read the full article" or not, but it strikes me as being just as useful for getting a quick idea of what a term means. (It's kind of the idea pondered here.)
I have a couple other suggestions, but I want to turn those over in my head for a bit first. For most of the project though: looks good!
