Holy Cow, this is great!

Words cannot express how excited and impressed I was this morning when I discovered this site. This is FANTASTIC!!

Couple of quick questions:-

1) Can you make it so that pressing enter inside this comment box inserts a carrage return and not submit the form - otherwise you'll get a lot messages cut off in their prime :-) (I'm using Firefox if that is what is the problem). I had to write this message in notepad and then copy/paste it into the comment box.

2) Any chance that the CodePlex project itself would be open sourced. I'd love to help add features and fix bugs with this myself but also use CodePlex as the basis of a front end for my own TFS repository to allow customers to raise bugs and track progress on them.

Again, can I just say a big "WELL DONE" to the folks behind this. Some of my TFS related projects that I'd moved to SourceForge from GotDotnet are about to find a new home...

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.
