[openstack-dev] [all] tenant vs. project

Ok... this is going to be one of those threads, but I wanted to try to
get resolution here.

OpenStack is wildly inconsistent in it's use of tenant vs. project. As
someone that wasn't here at the beginning, I'm not even sure which one
we are supposed to be transitioning from -> to.

At a minimum I'd like to make all of devstack use 1 term, which is the
term we're trying to get to. That will help move the needle.

However, again, I'm not sure which one that is supposed to be (comments
in various places show movement in both directions). So people with
deeper knowledge here, can you speak up as to which is the deprecated
term and which is the term moving forward.
