My original thinking was to call them "hosted projects" or "host
projects", but then it felt a bit incomplete. I kinda like the "Friends
of OpenStack" name, although it seems to imply some kind of vetting that
we don't actually do.

An alternative would be to give "the OpenStack project infrastructure"
some kind of a brand name (say, "Opium", for OpenStack project
infrastructure ultimate madness) and then call the hosted projects
"Opium projects". Rename the Infra team to Opium team, and voilĂ !
