Codeplex supports two version control systems, TFS and Mecurial (aka Hg). The first is a central based vcs, the latter is distributed. Distributed VCS is
much easier to work with and have people contribute to.
PSake is a build automation tool based on powershell. Very lightweightand far easier to work with than xml based msbuild / nant. Gives a single click compile and build package experience.
