Earlier today, I mailed the members of the projects below. Due to that,
there's good and bad news. The bad news is that the site apparently had
various configuration preferences as to serving "index.html" vs
"index.shtml" and that the current setup preferred "index.shtml" while
apparently a number of projects depended on the earlier preference of
serving "index.html", causing these "index.html" files to be hidden for a
few years.

The good news is that we now corrected this setup issue and that it turns
out that many more projects now actually serve a project page. While there
are still a few projects which didn't set up a project page, their number
is now much lower!

Possibly this applies to the 69 projects which I was about to redirect to
GitLab too. I'm still investigating.
