Bug Description

As per Horizon skype channel discussion, we need to standardize the Dashboard/Project/Tenant naming conventions. Agreement seems to be centered around Project being the preferred user-facing term. To avoid confusion around project/tenant, all user-facing instances of tenant will be replaced with project, and help text + documentation should be written to make it clear to people who care what the relationship between project and tenant is.

I would love it if we could use Account instead of either Project or Tenant... Tenant is cryptic for anyone other than a service provider. Project doesn't really describe what it is, IMHO. Account is the correct term: a grouping for users.

Anyway, just my 2 cents, nothing more :)

    Renamed all user-facing cases of "tenant" to "project".

    This required a little more refactoring than expected because I
    wanted to make the url slug also say "project", which required
    changing the panel slug, which in turn required changing the name of
    the panel directory, and then it seemed silly not to make the template
    directory match.

    Fixed bug 909495.

This is a terrible decision and generates confusion among users. Please change to tenant as what you are displaying is in fact tenant data and not project data.

@Matt Joyce: Keystone is the only project that uses tenant now. And it will be renaming tenant to project as well during the Folsom timeframe to put this issue to bed once and for all.

Glance still uses the term tenant.
