Subject [jira] [Created] (AIRFLOW-1101) Docs use the term "Pipelines" instead of DAGs
Date Wed, 12 Apr 2017 01:16:41 GMT
Andrew Chen created AIRFLOW-1101:

             Summary: Docs use the term "Pipelines" instead of DAGs
                 Key: AIRFLOW-1101
             Project: Apache Airflow
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Andrew Chen

It's a bit confusing to use the words "DAGs" and "pipelines" interchangeably. Here are a couple
examples where it is especially confusing.
"Transparency is everything. While the code for your pipeline is in source control, this is
a quick way to get to the code that generates the DAG and provide yet more context."
"The pipeline code you will author will reference the ‘conn_id’ of the Connection objects."
"Connections in Airflow pipelines can be created using environment variables."
"If all your boxes have a common mount point, having your pipelines files shared there should
work as well"
