Thank you all.
The tenant vs project thing has been an annoyance for almost the entire
time I've been on OpenStack. If we can standartdize on project moving
forward, it will make things better.
On a terminology thing: when talking about Nova, Glance, etc instead of
using projects, I use the term services. It makes it easier to distinguish.
Tenant never quite made sense to me. A tenant is the person that
occupies an apartment or building, but not the building itself.
Also, the term multi-tenancy implies a degree of isolation between users
that we never quite established between Keystone projects.
