In the past year, we've seen a lot of enhancement requests from you in our issue tracker for project hosting, and we can tell which issues are the most important to people by sorting them according to the number of times each issue has been starred. Last fall the most popular request by far was for us to support non-Gmail accounts (a.k.a "Google Accounts"), so we're no longer limiting project owners and members to Gmail accounts, and users can now use any email address with their project on Google Code. If you need to create a Google Account for your address, you can do that at the account creation page.
So keep starring those issues—not only will you receive issue updates via email, but it also tells us which bugs and enhancement requests are most important to you.
