I like the idea of paring down the information on the Project List page
regardless.

As for breaking things up into three pages... it may not be necessary once
the rows shrink.

I'd suggest "Project", "Status" and "Dates".

The "resourcename" is only of interest to a limited audience and it can be
derived from the URL for the podling status webpage, right?  My suggestion
would be to omit it.

*   The "Project" field should link to the project website: TLP site for
    graduated podlings, podling website for podlings currently in incubation,
    unlinked for retired podlings.
*   The "Status" field should link to the podling's incubation status page.
    (e.g. <http://incubator.apache.org/projects/foo.html>)
*   The "Dates" field should include both start date and end date, separated
    by an en dash (`&ndash;`) flanked by spaces: `2012-01-01 - 2013-12-31`.
    For podlings still in incubation, the end date could be replaced with
    "present": `2014-01-01 - present`
