Projects is basically a collection of Issues, but it can also contain Versions, Documents, Forums, a Knowledge base and a Support Center.
A project has a name, e.g. 'Website ABC' as well as a issue key prefix, e.g. WEB.
The issue key prefix enables you to easily recognizing what project the issues belong to. The issue key for issues in the 'Website ABC'-project will be WEB-1, WEB-2, and so on.
