Is a Rational Build Agent identical to a Rational Build Forge Agent?

I'm finding the documentation very confusing. This article is good,  https://jazz.net/library/article/1283, but I think it implies that a Rational Build Forge Agent is not the same as  Rational Build Agent. The RTC configuration files refer only to Rational Build Agents. I found this answer on the forum: https://jazz.net/forum/questions/75500/what-is-the-diff-between-jazz-build-agen-and-rational-be, which says in the first paragraph that they are the same thing, but in the second paragraph refers to the 'two agents'.

If they are the same, it would be incredibly helpful if they were called the same thing everywhere. If the are not it would also be incredibly helpful if the distinction were made clear.

 Yes, the Rational Build Agent in the Build Definition does refer to the Build Forge Agent.  I think it might be called the Rational Build Agent to keep it from getting confused with the Build Forge product which is separate from RTC, but the agent itself is the same agent from Build Forge.  So I'm not sure what the solution is, but you can enter a documentation defect and we can see if we can make it clearer.
