What is the difference between porridge and gruel?

Same thing, different names? Or altogether different ingredients? What's the scoop?

Gruel has the same base ingredient - oats with water or milk - but is thinner, and also accompanied by any leftover scraps and food products. It is generally associated with poverty, not the case with porridge.

Gruel contains milk.
