On problem is the word project is very overloaded.  At apache Jakarta is 
a Project.  a TLP but still a project. 
By using the term product, we are specifying that is a THING that we are 
shipping,    to us,  (the repo list) a product, is a thing that is 
"versioned" and distributed.

So I am -0 on using the word project.
