I considered that, but "gentoo bsd", "gentoo elections", "gentoo crypto" all show the respective project pages very highly in the search results, even without "Gentoo [Linux]" in their names. Also, even for projects with Gentoo in the name I'm not sure that it helps. For instance if I google "gentoo alpha" I get the appropriate project page as the second result (after the handbook link), but the title of the page is "Project:Alpha - Gentoo Wiki" and not the name of the project ("Gentoo Linux Alpha Development") and that name text doesn't show up as any of the abbreviated search results. I don't think the name is used for much except for the top of the box on the right side of the project page and on user pages.
