    Access to Source code for PowerShell

    Microsoft recently announced that the source code for the .NET Framework
    libraries would be made available so that developers can see and step into
    the code. Scott Guthrie's blog post is here:

    http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archi...libraries.aspx

    Part of that blog post says:

    "We'll begin by offering the source code (with source file comments
    included) for the .NET Base Class Libraries (System, System.IO,
    System.Collections, System.Configuration, System.Threading, System.Net,
    System.Security, System.Runtime, System.Text, etc), ASP.NET (System.Web),
    Windows Forms (System.Windows.Forms), ADO.NET (System.Data), XML
    (System.Xml), and WPF (System.Windows). We'll then be adding more libraries
    in the months ahead (including WCF, Workflow, and LINQ). The source code
    will be released under the Microsoft Reference License (MS-RL)."

    Are the PowerShell libraries covered by the "etc"? I certainly hope so.
    If not, how/who can we lobby to get the PowerShell libraries added to this
    program?

    Good question. Let's wait and see for the next few days/weeks to see if
    anything is announced by the PSH team. Then try putting something up on
    the connect site:

    Even if they aren't, Lutz Roeder's Reflector utility gives a pretty decent
    view into the inner workings of most .NET assemblies including the
    PowerShell assemblies.

    Talked to the PowerShell team about this. Basically, releasing the
    source would take resources away from the current development.

    I'd much prefer to see updates to PowerShell over seeing the source.

    It would be cool to see source for more cmdlets and providers though.
