This product is great.
Will there be any public release of Codeplex source code ?

I am looking for the same answer. I really would love to have CodePlex on top of my own TFS server.

Yes, I'd like to see code, too.

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.

How about posting what the overall architecture is? Pictures, deployment diagram, etc.?

The deployment is pretty straightforward to describe. We have a webfarm, a SQL server, a TFS server, a general processing server (stats calculations and such), and a failover machine for each.

All servers are hosted in the data center which has a bunch of networking gear.

Everyone else can share code, but not Microsoft. Pretty sad.

Microsoft has dozens of projects on CodePlex. Iron Python, AJAX Control Toolkit, and SQL Server Hosting Toolkit are a few examples of projects from Microsoft sharing the source code.

None of the open source hosting sites share the source code for their web site. The reason for this, which is the same for us, is the implementation is too specialized for the environment for it to be runnable by anyone else. For example the project statistics we provide is through an integration with WebTrends which isn't normally available to people.
