[Openstack-devel] OpenStackHowto - Removing confusing terms

1. Certain terms are misleading:

<proxy.host> = means it is a transport to a real host (like squid vs. Apache),
but for OpenStack "nova-api" *is* the real host.

<proxy.host> should be renamed as <mgmt.host>

2. Distribution :
Debian GNU/Linux squeeze -- simply unsupported. (few old packages do
exist, but not maintained and not documented)

Remove mention of "squeeze".

3. Too many "admin"s is confusing
### Create a tenant
# keystone-manage tenant add admin
### Create a user with its password
# keystone-manage user add admin <admin_password>
### Grant role admin to admin on tenant admin
# keystone-manage role grant Admin admin admin

Here we use the term "admin" for:
a. project / tenant
b. Admin role
c. admin (user)

NOVA_PROJECT_ID must be renamed from "admin" to <myproject>. (+all
related links in HOW-TO must be changed)
NOVA_USERNAME must be renamed from "admin" to <nova_admin>
