"Jump to a project..." drop-down should list public projects
Currently the "Jump to a project..." drop-down only lists projects that the current user is explicitly a member of; it would be good if it also listed public projects.
Rationale: We have a number of clients with logins to our redmine installation, and they have rights to see (and submit issues on ) 1) their own projects and 2) the public projects. However, we often get email along the lines of "we can't see the public projects" since they're trying to navigate to the latter using the "Jump to a project..." drop-down. Is there any reason for this not to list public projects?

Should be an option is implemented. We have literally hundreds of public projects and for everyone here it is nice to only see the ones that they are actually assigned to.
It would be nice to mark some projects to appear on everyone's jump to list as projects that are more of meta projects (we have one for coordinating other projects) should appear for everyone.

- File 2705-list-public-projects.diff added
I wrote a patch for the current trunk (r16430).
I think it would be better to list public projects for the following reasons.
- No projects are listed in the drop-down when the user is not a member of any projects even if there are some public projects which can be seen by the user. I think the behavior is confusing.
- Sometimes a user is not aware whether the project is public or the user is a member of the project. So the user may be confused if some projects are not listed in the drop-down.
- The drop-down is always shown in Redmine 3.4.0. I think that the possibility of confusion of users will increase.

I hope this issue will be accepted.
In my case
I write a page of "How to use Redmine" on the Wiki page of the public project and guide Redmine beginners.
But the problem is that it is difficult to access to the Wiki page of the public project for Redmine beginners.
Most of the beginners and non-beginners only use the drop down list of "Jump to a project ..." when they access to some projects.

Good idea. Also, I think that would be nice to have them grouped by project type (public|private).
Thanks for the feedback.
Grouping feature is really nice. But in order to this small improvement be delivered faster, I think it would be better to add further improvement after this patch is merged. Obvious UI change may be controversial.

We cannot always list all visible projects. As a user, I personnaly don't want that but to see only my projects in this dropdown. I agree that it can be fine in some cases but we'll add it later as an option for the user, not as the default behaviour.
