Recommended plugins for 2.0 should refer to "agents" rather than "slaves"

      Description

      Some plugins on the recommended plugin list still refer to "slaves" rather than "agents" — prominently, this includes the "New item" text of the Pipeline plugin.

      This should ideally be fixed for all recommended plugins before the Jenkins 2.0 release.

      I will try to concentrate on the most popular plugins, as listed by Daniel's spreadsheet, and keep track of PRs from this ticket.

      Though of course anyone who wants to help is welcome

            I'd love to see how you're going to fix the SSH Slaves Plugin.

            Renaming from "SSH Slaves Plugin" to "SSH Agents Plugin" seems like a reasonable solution.

            Except it's really ambiguous: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ssh-agent

            Yeah, I forgot about SSH agents. Couldn't you have just said that in the first place?

            Indeed, there is already a Jenkins plugin with virtually the same name https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/SSH+Agent+Plugin

            Since the SSH connection is done to a node rather than an agent, maybe "SSH Nodes Plugin" would make sense.
