Ticket #287 (closed Bug: fixed)
Confusing use of term 'Template' on Summary page.

|Component:||WP6 - CMIP5 Questionnaire||Version:||alpha|
The Introduction paragraph on the Summary page makes mention of the need to create at least one model template and one platform template. And the list of named items in the 'Models associated with X' section seems to reinforce this division between templates and things (i.e. entries) based on those templates - because some things have the word "template" in their name.
After a while it dawned on me that this division is fallacious: there are simply definitions of models and platforms, and not templates. What we speak of as instances in the Metafor/CIM world. The current wording seems to imply that you have to create a model template before you can create a model definition.
I think general users may find this confusing. My suggestion therefore would be to rename the "Add a new model (template)" button to "Add a new model definition" and modify the other bits of help text appropriately.
