A big year for politics as the elections just finished.
You may or may not have noticed that the same day was our latest CodePlex release which includes ... (drumroll) ... voting on items in the issue tracker! Honestly, the timing of the voting feature was pure coincidence, we didn't even think about the fact that we were deploying the feature on election day.
Issue tracker voting is a great way as a user to get involved in projects, by scanning the already logged issues and features, and then voting on the ones that interest you provides a great way of giving project owners help in understanding which ones have widespread interest.
Also, don't forget there is an issue tracker for the CodePlex site itself! Please vote on CodePlex site issues and features to help us choose which things to include in our upcoming deployments!
