The reason why they differ is historical: the API comes from hydra
(which uses words such as 'jobset'), and the web UI uses Cuirass' own
vocabulary (evaluations, specifications, builds).

We would need to change all of Cuirass' code too, which is, in my
opinion, too much work.  Plus, Cuirass and Hydra behave differently, so
it makes sense to use another vocabulary for Cuirass.  Changing the API
would be annoying because it's used by several people.  So overall, I
like the status quo.

Note that there is no notion of "package" in Cuirass.  Most builds refer
to packages, but some of them, for example, refer to tests.

Yes, and for that we need an admin interface.  But this is off-topic :)
That could be a seperate bug/wishlist though.

I don't understand this.  :-)

Hmm, I don't think this should be a priority because we can already
browse by jobstatus from the Specifications page.

This is too specific.  What we need is a way to customize the front
page.  That could be another bug/wishlist too.
