Re: Proposal: Replace all references to master/slave in GNOME modules

One coffee later, I guess we discuss different things in this thread:

1) Whether to replace the "master/slave" terminology. I'm slightly in
favor if *both* terms are used in connection.
Terms like "blacklist" and "whitelist" are similar. They have a bad
connotation for some plus are harder to interpret than terms like
"blocklist" and "allowlist" which actually express what they do.

2) Whether to rename the git master branch ("master" having the meaning
of "original copy" as already pointed out) when there is no slave
branch. Which I'm not in favor.

Should have written that already in my previous email instead. Meh.
Sorry, Daniel.
