Emacs info -> files -> file name cache (after all the functions)

only for the duration of the Emacs session.  You can view the contents
of the cache with the `file-cache-display' command.

Either/both!
A 'project' is invariably associated with a directory. Any convenient
way of telling emacs of such 'projects' is fine.
