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

They all come from the same word with the same connotations:

Connotations listed on the Wiktionary page for master differ a lot. The way git and audio engineers use the 
word master, it's the 13th definition from the link, meaning an original. Ukrainian and probably other Slavic 
languages derive majster from definitions 6 and 7, meaning an expert or a repair worker. Majsternistj means 
proficiency, majsternja is a service center or an art studio. All from the same Latin root magister that we 
also have as a university graduate title. It's a very positive word and should remain.
