Did you hear that GitHub is planning to rename racially sensitive terms like "master"?

My two cents: rename master to daddy. xD

    Good luck renaming all master branches and getting away with this.

    I'm gonna comment the same here as in linuxxx's thread.

    What are they gonna call it then? Führer?

    Frankly speaking, "parent" would be a legit choice. So yeah, you might be right

    For "master" I don't think it is a problem, you can name it "main" or something like that. I'd guess that GitHub will not change existing names but choose a new default for the newly created one, as to not break integrations.
    I have a stronger opinion about "Blacklist" and "Whitelist": Allow/deny/exclusive list will create confusion

    "Why can't I reach your network?"
    "Oh, I accidentally deny listed your IP"
    Who would say something that?
