Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-2248:
----------------------------------------

Noah, I ask you now to stop. You've said your piece, the topic has been debated. Please don't
keep this topic alive until you "win". I know that you don't want our community direction
to be decided by only those players with the energy to keep fighting. The topic has been discussed
and reasonable people have objected. You've twice characterised their objections unfairly
and I ask you to ponder that. Please close the the ticket.

> Inspired by the comments on this PR:
> https://github.com/django/django/pull/2692
> 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.
