Two Source Code Repositories for IronPython

Dave Fugate is an IronPython tester. In the blog entrry he talks about how source code from the Microsoft internal development repositories is synced to the TFS repository on Codeplex.
In particular he addresses the issue as to why all the commits to the public repository have the astonishingly helpful checkin message "Latest sources migrated to CodePlex TFS", rather than actually telling you anything useful about what has changed.

He also explains how their processes have changed, enabling them to do code syncs to the public repository more often. (Something that is very useful for us at Resolver Systems as we port Resolver One to IronPython 2. We are using the new source drops daily so that we can pick up problems as quickly as possible.)
