Andrew Purtell created HBASE-13852:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Replace master-slave terminology in book, site, and javadoc with a more
modern vocabulary
                 Key: HBASE-13852
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13852
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: documentation, site
            Reporter: Andrew Purtell
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.0.0


We should reconsider our use of historical master-slave terminology everywhere - book, site,
and javadoc - and replace it with a more modern vocabulary. There was a conversation in the
background at HBaseCon about this (I was involved in one on Twitter). Out of some of the suggestions,
I like "coordinator" as replacement for "master", and "worker" as one replacement for "slave",
with the other the more descriptive "regionserver" or "region server".
