Description Randy Barlow 2013-07-24 14:54:42 EDT
I've noticed that we talk about "dictionaries" and "lists" in our documentation, which makes sense to us since we are a Python project. However, our API users might not always be working in a Python environment, and we are dealing in JSON across the wire, so it would be good for us to use JSON type names[0], such as object and array (instead of dictionary and list).

We should audit our API docs for these words and replace the usage of them so that our users will have an easier time understanding which data types we are referring to.
