Description of problem:
It would be nice to have the alphabetical selection than the page numbering selection for project listing. For example, to search 'system-config-printer', I have to click at least a few times the page numbers randomly on top to list the projects beginning with 's'. It is impossible to display the list of the projects starting with 's' with one click.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. To search 'system-config-printer', I have to guess which number of page containing the list starting with 's'
2. Most likely guessing is not correct, so that I have to try again to narrow down
Most likely I can not find particular project via one click, unless it starts with 'A'.
If I can click an alphabet to search, one click can show the list I am looking for.
As more projects registered, more guessing and clicking be required.
In addition, as admin, default setting hide 'archived' projects. With admin perspective, default setting should show 'archived' projects instead hiding.
As a certain workaround, I use project search field. I somehow have already learnt to use it in the translate.zanata.org instance. I know, not very relevant, but may be helpful in the meantime.

project search field in the menu
Thanks for your tip!
Btw, I found another bug in translate.zanata.org (Zanata 3.5.1 (git-server-3.5.1)). The project search field does not let me type, thus I have to copy and paste the string into it. I attach the screenshot.
How to reproduce;
1. Click the icon located left top to go to project search field
2. Dropdown menu appears
3. Click the search field located top of the menu
4. The menu disappears
This does not apply fedora.zanata.org.

I have fixed your bug in this comment above. It was only a problem on smaller screen that used the menu. Thanks for finding that.
In regards to the original request (alphabetical selection), I am working on a new project listing screen which I am looking more from a browsing perspective.
So rather than trying to find a particular project on this page, it would be more for discovering new and interesting projects. Finding projects directly would be what search is used for.
This makes more sense for http://translate.zanata.org but I would be interested in ideas that would improve it for the Fedora instance.
Here is what I came up with originally: assets-zanata.rhcloud.com/master/projects/
Although I will be improving/changing this again slightly.
Migrated; check JIRA for bug status: http://zanata.atlassian.net/browse/ZNTA-70
