That may actually just be a matter of language. Certainly rules relating
to the development of software products do not apply to the development
of open source data or the development of material for promoting and
training participants in ANY of those activities, but a 'project' is a
distinct package of activity aiming towards a specific result.

Now the initial 'complaint' is that the current links to projects to
promote the other activities should not be shown on the front page, and
that is patently wrong. OSGeo live is clearly a 'project' providing a
package of material from all the other projects, and I would like to see
that 'pushed' a little more and it could potentially be used to produce
an income from the provision of physical disks.

Public Geospatial Data and Education and Curriculum do seem to have
'projects' buried somewhere within their pages of text? It would be nice
project to create a front end to land on that much better provides a
display of available open source data and documents. There is a
substantial and growing library of openly available geosource data, but
accessing it in a way that links to the available software would be a
useful project.
