the projects list returned by getAllProjectGroupsWithProjects and getProjects is a List<ProjectSummary>,
if you use a List<Project>, it is normal to have some null values because all datas
of Project 
class aren't populated.

yes, maybe we'll need to rename them or use java5 type notation in the client.

a project summary is a project without details (notifiers, dependencies, parent, build results,
build definitions)
