This glossary defines terms, both common and more niche, that are important to understand when reading Tizen documents. They are also often used by Tizen team members and other contributers when conversing on http://www.tizen.org (issues, SRs), on IRC and other sites.

As much as possible, we should link to the most authoritative and recent source of information for a term. That approach should be the most helpful for people who want to learn more about a topic.
