    Slightly technical post on Git

    Fair warning, whatever your views it looks like you may have to start renaming your master branches in Git.

    Pathetic AND stupid.

    Stupid: master in the context of git is "master copy"
    Pathetic: white saviours think so little of me, that they want to put me in a padded cell where I can't hurt myself on words (that don't even carry the connotation they think)

    It just makes me uncomfortable, and I think it's damaging.

        Would Pimp and Ho be an acceptable alternative?

        I'm not very good at this woke/pc stuff to be honest....

          Similar to the move towards replacing whitelist and blacklist with allowed and denied lists.

              From Why I’m Dropping the Term “Scrum Master” – The Radical Agilist

              i) Some potential upheaval for the 'Agile' lads/lasses .. 'Scrum Master' -> 'Facilitator'
              "Thus it matters that the word “master” has a horrible history for African-Americans."
              "I am going back to the term “Facilitator” for the role I’ve been calling Scrum Master."

              ii) Also for estate agents:
              “master bedroom” -> “owner suite”

                I'm perfectly happy with this, can't see anything wrong at all.

                  I really don't know many people who arent white, perhaps a couple. I just can't imagine anyone being offended by whitelist or blacklist. Terms not even relevant to race.

                  It's almost like you would have to go out of your way to be offended.

                    Blackout
                    Black ops
                    Blackberries
                    Black magic
                    Black Adder
                    Black Mirror

                    So many racist terms, no wonder the mobs are seething.
