The order projects have been listed in overview.rest has changed over the years to meet different criteria. I think that I was the person who ordered the projects last time and after grouping projects I sorted the projects according to "importance". I roughly based "importance" on:

  1. Whether the project has been incubated in OSGeo.
  2. The level of popularity and uptake of the projects, roughly measured by our OSGeoLive metrics page, (which is based on OpenHub? metrics).

I realise that "importance" is open to interpretation and debate and it is easier to select a clear definition such as alphabetical order. However I'm still in favour of ordering according to this "importance" measure as the primary goal of OSGeoLive is to help new users find the best project for them, and as such we should present the most important projects first.
