That seems to be the tag, that all other projects who have applied for
incubation are under. I guess it's less clear on the new site which
things are applying to become "Projects" and which are not, as some of
the community projects have not applied for incubation.

Cameron, where do you suggest OSGeo Live gets listed instead? It was
added to community because it wasn't listed in either of the categories
and therefore isn't shown on the navigation menus, so people may never
find it...
