Linux team has banned the use of terminology like ‘master’, ‘slave’, ‘blacklist’,‘whitelist’ etc and instead recommend developers to use more neutral words to welcome everyone.
For ‘master’ they recommend
main/replica or subordinate
host/worker or proxy
I am not saying that the team should change the word master as it may require a lot of work to change the code. Is it really necessary? I just brought up this issue because I saw this post on r/firefox.
