Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2248) Replace "master" and "slave" terminology
Date Wed, 28 May 2014 02:33:02 GMT

Nicolas Dufour commented on COUCHDB-2248:
-----------------------------------------

Perhaps I'm repeating myself here but what is the problem we try to solve here? I live in
the US and showed this ticket to several people (both in IT and not) and went away laughing
saying to me it's probably the most ridiculous thing they've read today. Not sure if it's
a good sign honestly. Time to move on?

> Summary is: `master` and `slave` are racially charged terms, and it would be good to
avoid them. Django have gone for `primary` and `replica`. But we also have to deal with what
we now call multi-master setups. I propose "peer to peer" as a replacement, or just "peer"
if you're describing one node.
> As far as I can tell, the primary work here is the docs. The wiki and any supporting
material can be updated after.
