Quick history: Dries identified last August at OSCON that the most  
important code in Drupal was the project module, because most of the  
things the Drupal community did went through it.  CivicSpace improved  
the project module, through funding Nedjo and lots of personal  
contributions from Nedjo and Dries.  There was good contributions to  
the project module from the community to help improve it,  as well as  
many calls from the community to kill it.

The administration survey surprisingly indicated that 83% of Drupal  
administrators spent a lot of time looking for new features and  
modules.   We extended the project module to make it easier to  
categorize modules.  We did several iterations of categorizing Drupal  
project modules.   One iteration was done in Vancouver.   We did some  
additional iterations on the mailing list and voila:


It's probably time to do another categorization of the modules.  If  
you are interested in doing that categorization I can help you lead  
that effort.  It's also worth noting that Derek took over maintenance  
of the project module and he could probably do with some dedicated  
user experience help to make it even better.  No expertise needed,  
just a willingness to learn.
