The master/slave debate Show more
Within GNOME we're currently having a discussion about replacing the terms "master" and "slave". Most people are in favor of such a movement, but the point of contention is on changing the name of the git master branch. Not everyone is convinced that master by itself is harmful. Personally I am not affected by it, but I understand that it can make people uncomfortable.
Does anyone feel bothered by the term master alone, even in the context of "master copy" and such? Input from non-white, non-male people highly appreciated here.
