After you create the project, you get a nice little home page that shows the project's title, summary, and description:

I'll explain those tabs in a minute, though the Project Home should be pretty obvious. I had to chop off part of this page to make the image fit. Let me show you what I chopped off first, and explain it quickly, because it's another example of how Google likes to put everything at your fingertips.

These two boxes are on the right on the project's home page. Clicking on the link next to "License:" takes you to a page that explains that particular open source license. Clicking on one of the links next to "Labels:" (there would be more than one if I had put in more than one) performs a search on Google's Project Hosting repository for all projects with that label. Clicking on the link next to "Project owners:" takes you to a profile page of the project owner. This page shows the username, project name, and project membership (who else belongs to the project).
