I'll recommend readig Bernhard's article "Let’s end all Free Software
“projects” quickly!"

  A “project” is always temporary, in the narrow sense of the term. Some
  Free Software people use “project” to refer to long lasting
  initiatives instead. By adopting the more widespread use of the term,
  Free Software initiatives enhance their ability to reflect upon
  themselves and to communicate better towards others. To make a
  distinction between an initiative, projects and products enables a
  group to more clearly speak about their individual interests and how
  this leads to successful cooperation. Let us end the misleading use of
  “project” and get into concluding more Free Software project faster!
