Sorry to be late with my comments, personal change stuff can be quite
a distracting issue and kept me away for a while (actually still does).

I can see the point about project being too general. But developers is
as general and it seems misleading since there are lots of docs for
people wanting to help with non-development tasks like documentation,
project management etc. here.

For me "Project" was OK because I always associated it with "info
about the project and work on the project".
But that may be my personal reading of it.

Perhaps it makes sense to call it something even more specific like
"Participation". I still like project though because there are also
docs on Forrest as a project, our goals etc.
