The Project list might benefit from a few explanatory words attached to each Project name,
as these names can be rather esoteric; remember we are not preaching to the converted who
know Apache software is free, but to a puzzled stranger.

As this request for review is posted on an OpenOffice list, I remark that the presence of
OpenOffice is not readily apparent.  I have not statistics before me of uptake of all Apache
projects, but I would expect that OpenOffice (although Incubating) is or shortly will be among
the front runners and deserves a presence.
