no, I really meant which as I described on my
original e-mail was the pre-2013 projects page we had running before
transitioning to the new wiki.g.o based projects listing. I believe
the future of projects.g.o will vary, certain maintainers are setting
up GitLab pages for their project (using Jekyll / Hugo), some others
are using the wiki, still. I believe the engagement team was looking
into possible new ways to unify projects listing into one single view,
not sure what's the status there though.
