CVS tags: HEAD
Add the projects from the website (htdocs/contrib/projects.xml).

At this point, all this is is a "blind conversion" from the xml file to
individual mdwn files.  I did this by using a custom xslt file and some
manual cleanups on the files.

Most of these projects are still misclassified as they do not list the
correct difficulty or the category they list is not yet defined in the
wiki.  Some other projects need to be pruned out due to the lack of
details (or moved to the ideas page).  But this is a "good enough" start
that should allow me to nuke these same projects from htdocs.

description="""
Remove the residual geometry code and datastructures from FFS (keep some kind of
allocation groups but without most of what cylinder groups now have) and replace
blocks and fragments with extents, yielding a much simpler filesystem well
suited for modern disks.  The result would be useful to many operating systems
beyond just NetBSD, since UFS/FFS is used in so many different kernels.
