The Foundation hosts open source projects within the Symphony ecosystem; such projects are one of the two primary types of collaborative bodies within the Symphony Software Foundation, the other being Working Groups. Projects are largely self-governed, but report periodically to the Engineering Steering Committee, and are expected to use the governance model and project management processes recommended by the Foundation, as well as follow the Foundation's project lifecycle.

- The Active state was renamed to Released during the 2017-06-06 ESCo meeting, and the (unused) Long Term Maintenance state removed.
