* `RESOLVED: Change term "containing box" to "containment box"`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;fantasai> Topic: Terminology Question for css-contain<br>
&lt;fantasai> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5590<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: Spun out from bigger discussion, and mats_ pointed out we used the term 'containing box' to talk about the principal box of element to which containment is being applied<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: 'containign box' sounds a lot like 'containing block'<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: he proposes 'containers box', I don't love that either<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: but 'contaiment box' maybe helps?<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: help avoid confusion with 'containing block'<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: purely editorial<br>
&lt;fantasai> +1 to changing<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> q+<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: Used half a dozen times in this spec, not really in other specs (yet)<br>
&lt;heycam> +1 to "containment box"<br>
&lt;fantasai> TabAtkins: +1 to changing<br>
&lt;astearns> ack TabAtkins<br>
&lt;fantasai> TabAtkins: "containing" is used too much across CSS<br>
&lt;fantasai> TabAtkins: "containment box" sounds great, directly ties into concept, and slightly more distinct<br>
&lt;fantasai> RESOLVED: Change term "containing box" to "containment box"<br>
