Project Kenai: Calling Developers of Like Mind and Passion

It has been interesting recently to monitor the progress of Project Kenai, Sun’s "new foundation for its connected developer experience of tomorrow."  The concept is quite simple:

"Freely host your open source projects and code as well as find and collaborate with developers of like mind and passion."

Having gone live back in September of 2008, Kenai now exceeds over 7,000 members and surpassed 500 publicly hosted open source projects.   This juxtaposition of members and projects seems to be growing towards critical mass.

Currently, seven of those 7,000+ members (yours truly included) tagged themselves with "Identity" as an area of interest.  I wonder what innovation in this area awaits us?

    Why all the push on Kenai? What is wrong with java.net?

    I think Kenai is less restrictive than java.net – allowing a broader array of developers to use the facility, even if they don’t meet the specific requirement of a java.net open source project.
