      First, do not take these request as fixed, we should find a clear naming and stick to it in all places in order to improve the user experiece and facilitate hudson adoption.

      Here are some of the inconsistencies I found:

      • job versus project
      • build (action), may not be the best because not every thing you run or execute on hudson is a build.
      • node versus slave

      We already have a page at http://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Terminology but this is incomplete and reading it doesn't help too much.

      A good terminology should also include a list of `old terms`, terms that are outdated and to be replaced by newer variants.
