In the past the DNN forge was a list of 3rd Party open source modules, created by the community and not linked to DNN corps.   If people wanted the high profiled DNN modules, these had their own area, as well as being distributed with the DNN core.

Now suddenly with the new changes to the forge we find the DNN projects part of the selection.  This is just basically unhelpful and reduces any benefit 3rd party open source projects gain from being in the DNN forge.  Most people know the DNN modules and goto the forge looking for something else, If new people want to get to know the DNN modules then these people can find them  in the DNN module area.  Trying to search the DNN forge now just gives a nice list of DNN modules with some 3rd party ones thrown in.

If DNN corps are trying to help the community based projects, please understand that the download and review rates of all 3rd Party modules is far lower than the high profile DNN ones, so listing the DNN modules in the forge is simply killing it off.  Even the most popular 3rd party module NB_Store is now reduced to the 5th page when seaching by popularity.

While I welcome the concept of latest released list, which seems to at least highlight different projects in turn.  The fact the DNN modules are listed is might as well just remove the DNN forge and say "go and find what you can on codeplex, because we're not helping!".

I don't suppose my comments will cause much to change, but I think it should be pointed out.


 I disagree!

By leaving the DNN core modules inside the SourceForge it encourages community participation in the improvement of these modules. It also shows DotNetNuke Corp's commitment to build core DNN modules as they would expect of 3rd party vendors. The core modules also serve as sophisticated examples of DNN module development.

I think the best fix would be to improve the DNN Forge browser to allow more ways to sort and filter modules. Including/excluding core modules might be one such option.
