Google Does (Google) Code

You’re probably getting sick of my “Google Does…” posts, and if so you’re really going to be sick of them after this, because there are probably about five people in the world who care about Google Code and none of them read this blog. Basically this is a new portal for all the sanctioned open-source and open-API coding projects related to Google. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, that’s okay—just trust me, this is a good thing.

I have to admit, though, I was a little disappointed when I reached this page after reading the description on the Google Options page (which is actually interesting to a wider audience, so check it out). I wanted to believe that Google had produced a portal/search engine for all open-source coding projects. Granted this would duplicate the work of Sourceforge somewhat, but then there are some frustrating aspects of Sourceforge that could use some Googlicious refactoring.
