[openstack-dev] [nova] [scheduler] [gantt] Please stop using "Gantt" for discussing about Nova scheduler

I actually prefer to use the term Gantt, it neatly encapsulates the discussions and it doesn't take much effort to realize that Gantt refers to the scheduler and, if you feel there is confusion, we can clarify things in the wiki page to emphasize the process: clean up the current scheduler interfaces and then split off the scheduler.  The end goal will be the Gantt scheduler and I'd prefer not to change the discussion.

Bottom line is I don't see a need to drop the Gantt reference.

tl;dr: I used the [gantt] tag for this e-mail, but I would prefer if we could do this for the last time until we spin-off the project.

  As it is confusing for many people to understand the difference in between the future Gantt project and the Nova scheduler effort we're doing, I'm proposing to stop using that name for all the efforts related to reducing the technical debt and splitting out the scheduler. That includes, not exhaustively, the topic name for our IRC weekly meetings on Tuesdays, any ML thread related to the Nova scheduler or any discussed related to the scheduler happening on IRC.
Instead of using [gantt], please use [nova] [scheduler] tags.

That said, any discussion related to the real future of a cross-project scheduler based on the existing Nova scheduler makes sense to be tagged as "Gantt", of course.
