Some interest in KForge including bug/feature comments. All of the 
points are good ones and relate to the 'usability' of the site.

First, let me say that kforge interests me _a lot_ - where I work we are 
much in the market for a system that allows easy Subversion+Trac 
set up and management per project, and access control is a big plus too
(read-write, read-only, and no-access, per project). I've only skimmed your
sites so far, but I'm sure I'll be back.

See 'Trac/SVN access problems' below to see why this isn't a Trac ticket :-)

x. 'Projects' should list all projects by default

Or maybe have it a configurable option.
Did I simply miss this feature? Possibly...

For a SourceForge-sized repository, I suppose it makes sense. But for a 
group or
small company, this is too fine-grained.

For example, on KnowledgeForge, there are 8 registered projects. I have 
to guess
their first letter to find them :-)

x. Trac/SVN access problems

 From https://knowledgeforge.net/project/kforge/, when I click on 'Trac' 
or 'Svn'
I arrive at the 'members' section, this is why this message isn't Trac 
instead :-)

x. Reading Trac without registration

I was required to register to access Trac. Maybe read-only access is 
as a default?

I guess this isn't as big an issue in corporate settings, I know it isn't in
mine, but seems restrictive for FLOSS development.

x. Registering loses navigation location

I registered to get to Trac, then logged in. My navigated location was 
lost, I
had to navigate back to projects/kforge and click 'Trac'.

It would be nice if after logging in I would be forwarded to where I 
tried to get, kforge's 'Trac'.
