Point of discussion: Language around stopping schedules should be "stop" rather than "end" #1740

"End" generally indicates "destruction with finality" when used as a transitive verb. E.g. "I will end you" "And thus his watched has ended". By contrast "Stop" means a cessation that can in turn be restarted. Imagine if we re-named "stop signs" "end signs".

So when I typed "dagster schedule end foo" I actually translate to "delete" in my mind.

"dagster schedule stop foo" is more clear that this is a cessation and not a deletion.

Currently, the behavior is destructive as you described. We should, however, support stopping schedules to later resume them. Tracking here: #1743
