a private gnu mailing list thread features a defense of black face and master/slave terminology. I'm done. so fucking done. I didn't think this new mailing list could possibly be worse than the other one, but here we are.
@dthompson at work git has been changed to use 'mainline' rather than 'master' by default. And elsewhere we're using 'active/standby' vs 'master/slave'. These things aren't hard, and it's jarring to go back to old nomenclature once one is used to the new one.
