At the past summit, we discussed this again. Currently, our repo
contains two directories: horizon and openstack_dashboard, they both
will need new names.

We discussed a renaming in the past; the former consensus was:
rename horizon to horizon_lib and
rename openstack_dashboard to horizon.

IMHO that doesn't make any sense and will confuse people a lot. I
wouldn't object to rename horizon to horizon_lib, although any other
name, e.g django-horizon should be fine as well.

openstack_dashboard is our official name; people from outside refer to
the Dashboard as Horizon, why not rename to openstack_horizon here?

Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions?
