This comes up common enough in my conversations to warrant an issue tracker people can vote on.
Reason: More people -> more eyes -> more contributions -> less work for Microsoft.
Microsoft has done this before e.g.
is hosted on github so I am sure it can be done.
My intention here is not to point out any bad UI experience specific to codeplex (those belong on the codeplex project
). The intention of this issue is to provide a platform that the TypeScript team can observe to see the community desire to migrate to Github.
This can be used whenever the team re-evaluates the hosting site based on their business needs.
