Master / Slave ...'leader' and 'follower'

Postby Rudi » Wed May 28, 2014 1:58 pm

Hi Guys ;-) ;-) ;-)

I read this last days:

"The docs and some tests contain references to a master/slave db configuration.
While this terminology has been used for a long time, those terms may carry racially charged meanings to users.
This patch replaces all occurrences of master and slave with 'leader' and 'follower'
"
Like this Thread

https://github.com/django/django/pull/2692

I request a neutral describe for Master / Slave
suggest: 'leader' and 'follower'

;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)

LG
Rudi

I think these terms are very commonly used in the technical domain and political correctness can go too far.
