How do we contribute? (or can we?)

Is the only way to contribute to the Spark project to fork it?

There's no public source control repository, and the source packages are distributed with a non-functional git repo. The Issue Tracker appear to be write-only (suggestions go in and are silently ignored by the project owners). And this discussion forum is largely unused.

Spark was a promising project, but it appears to have died. If this is an open-source project, it needs to start behaving like one.

It's not dead, I'm just really busy. Additional participation is being saught out. The dead codeplex resources are an illusion though - conversations happen on the spark-dev google group, and the source code is on github.

Any offers to help triage the Issue Tracker would be greatly appreciated. VS2010 will need to spin up soon as well.

A question was also raised about the possibility of moving source from git to mercurial.

I, too, would be interested in helping with the project, specifically VS2010 integration. Is github still the main repository for this project?
