Building on Dimitris ideas:

OSGeo Community Ideas
OSGeo Community Projects

Community Idea for OSGeo
Community Projects for OSGeo

I kind of like the last two because they clearly separate the projects 
as NOT being "Offical" OSGeo projects but also suggest that they are 
projects being generated by and for the greater OSGeo Community to 
support existing OSGeo efforts in some way.

I like the last one because "Projects" denotes some effort where as 
"Ideas" are less substanial and more like "vapor-ware", well to me 
anyway, and not to detract from Dimitris' suggestions because I only got 
to these ideas through his.
