    Description

      The terms "Project" or "Job" seem to be used interchangeably, which is confusing
      (at least to a new user like myself).

      "New Job" vs. "Delete Project"

      Clicking on "job" Foo from the dashboard brings up page "Project Foo".

      etc.

            True. "Job" refers to all items in Hudson, and a project is a particular subtype
            of job, but I guess such distinction is confusing for users.

            It's not very easy to make this all consistent, unfortunately, but at least
            we'll see if we can update HTML.

            I am writing documentation to explain how to use Jenkins and I find myself having to explain that clicking on "New Job" creates a "Project". Very confusing. I think it is worth cleaning up the HTML.
