Incompatible component names are a significant barrier to interoperable features. Component types that tend to be shared between multiple features or apps include: roles, taxonomy vocabularies, text formats, and content types.
The Apps compatible module is one initiative to address incompatibilities by providing a set of generic components and methods to share them between apps.
To help determine what standardized component names would make sense for compatible features between apps and distros, a first step is to inventory the roles and names currently in use.
This wiki page aims to capture existing names for some key component types as used in various features sets and distros. Please help fill it out!
