For starters, how do you explain what a "project" is, when
the only example we can give is a repository?

The way we should either way: with a higher level description.

Something like:

A project is set of files. Which we usually define through a list of directories where the files reside, and a list of ignore rules that exclude some files within said directories from being considered a part of the project.

The above information is provided by the project backend that is in use. The main backend supplied with Emacs is based on VC, and it uses repository markers and associated ignore files (as well as the `project-vc-ignores` variable).

I see nothing wrong with having this in the VC chapter for now; we can
always move it out later, when there are other back-ends.  The
placement of sections in chapters of the manual is neither sacred nor

As long as it doesn't say that a project is a VC repository.
