Just for your information, here's the terminology used in AutoDeploy. Maybe we can find some
matching points.

Environment : an environment is a container which hosts update units and define the update
Update Units: an update unit is a resource which can be included in one or more steps of an
update plan. AutoDeploy supports the following update units:
  JEE application server (weblogic, websphere, jboss)
 JDBC data sources
 JMS servers/queues/topics
 Shared lib
 JNDI aliases
 Location (local or remote filesystem)
 System command
 JEE artifacts (ear/war) 
 Configuration files (with regexp substitution)
 Database (with SQL scripts execution)
Update Plan: an update plan is the workflow description of an update. It mixes update units
by steps to perform an update logic.

Maybe it can give us some ideas ;)

Yepp, I guess this will be interesting discussion as we might get
different suggestions for the same thing :) But I guess we can manage that.

My first suggestions would be:

- Artifacts
(Bundles would be wrong and components could be confusing as these are
not components in the oo sense)
- Features (for Groups)
- License is the tough one. Maybe its something like "product"? Or
