Okay, so the idea is to share project sources...

So when is the CodePlex source going to be available? Seems like an obvious dog-fooding to let us help you grow the system...

yeah, where are the sources?

I believe the idea is that you start your own projects. So the sources are there when you have written them. Don't see sources you want. Start a project and write your own.

CodePlex just got started (went live last Thursday) so give the guys time to get things going, remove the test projects (there are still a few lingering) and post the code. I'm sure it will be available (like you said, this is a great way to show of dogfooding) shortly.

Okay, if it isn't (like how the Alexandria source of SourceForge got posted by it was so old and didn't work it was useless) then you can scream in a few weeks.

Rome wasn't burned in a day you know.

We currently don't have plans to make the CodePlex site a shared source project. We're planning to fully support and maintain it at Microsoft, and the nature of the site requires coordination with the internal operations and hosting teams. The software is designed to run in the Microsoft data center, so it isn't something that could realistically be hosted in another environment.

I must say I'm disappointed by the fact that this isn't going to be an open-source project. I was hoping that with the recent openness of things like the CSSFriendly Adapters, the ASP.Net Providers, and the Atlas Control Toolkit we were going to see the trend continue. I would like to see the sources for something Microsoft consider a "production" site, since most of the sample sites I've seen so far are obviously not scalable, localized, etc...

There is an open source project similar to CodePlex you could contribute to, it's written in C#, .NET 2.0 and uses Subversion for source control.
