You're right, it isn't very clear---the easiest way I found was clicking
on "" on the main page, and then "Explore projects on".

My hunch is that it is this way because they have GitLab the project,
and then GitLab the hosted instance.  But it would still benefit from
some clarity, since logged in users have a completely different
experience (and website, even!).

I CC'd Sytse on this.
