It seems I need to clarify something:
This is not for arbitrary projects that would be hosted on google code
or sourceforge.  It is for ArchLinux specific projects.  Developers
will be the only ones able to create new projects, so it will be their
discretion on whether or not a project is for "ArchLinux" or not.
