Mirror the .NET framework source code on Github
It would really be helpful if the .NET framework source code was available for online browsing and referencing. Hosting the source code on GitHub would enable this as well as the ability to link to files and even specific lines of code. However the current code drop would need to be better organized before it is mirrored online. Organizing by folder/namespace would make it really easy to navigate.
Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.

I much prefer Github to CodePlex. CodePlex simply isn't nearly as usable.
