They listened! I just blogged yesterday about the UI of Codeplex (well, a bit) and apparently there is at least some effort in getting the Codeplex community to help better design the way that Codeplex works.
I should add a caveat to this blog though: I just lied. Paula wrote her blog a few days ago, so she beat me to the punch. Damn. Well, better late than never.
Anyway, Codeplex really does need a better interface. There is just something not-so-usable about it. For one, SF tends to have a better idea of how to organize their projects. I hope Codeplex follows their lead. (Freshmeat isn’t bad at this either.)
