This is very much my thinking too. I'd agree with this proposal if
every branch forked from master was called slave/hughsie/whatever but
in this case the master is clearly referring to the canonical version
that the others are derived from. The word "master" isn't a bad word,
and doesn't always mean the opposite of slave.

It's non-gender neutral, which was mentioned earlier in the thread.
