git project vs repository, what's the fundamental difference?

I have two projects that currently use SVN and I’m migrating to git, I signed up to gitorious
and there’s the option to create a new project or add a repository.
I’m just starting out with git so I don’t know what the difference is, or rather what it means if I simply use to repositories under one project.
If i do that I’ll end up with theirDomain.com/myname/repository1 and theirDomain.com/myname/repository2

If I choose to create two projects then I end up with
theirDomain.com/project1
theirDomain.com/project2

    That is a gitorious, not a git thing. You can have multiple repositories per project.

    For instance, if you have a client/server application. You could have one project, and a repository for the client and a repo for the server inside it.

    With respect to the underlying git system itself and loose terms, a git repo is the .git dir. A git project is the parent dir containing the .git dir; the parent dir also serves as the ‘working directory.”

    Three main sections of a Git project

    1. Git directory, .git (also known as repository)
    2. Working area/directory
    3. Staging area (the index)

    Git has no such things as projects, only repositories. These projects are nothing more but a feature of Gitorious as it seems to me.

    It is just like if you use sourceforge, googlecode, redmine, trac or whatever: you have the repo where your actual code is, and then you have a broader project that includes your repo, but also has things like an issue tracker, maybe a wiki, etc….

    It is all the other stuff that relates to your code, but isn’t actually source code.
