Subject [jira] [Commented] (MESOS-1478) Replace Master/Slave terminology
Date Fri, 20 Jun 2014 20:14:24 GMT


Benjamin Hindman commented on MESOS-1478:

First, thanks [~clarkbreyman] for creating this ticket and everyone for sharing their perspective.

[~ghetzel], I personally want to make sure we don't treat this discussion in a trivial way.
When the project started over 5 years ago by a bunch of graduate students we had no intention
of being offensive, crude, casually intolerant, or deliberately ignorant. Instead, as [~tstclair]
pointed out, we were products of the textbooks and course slides that we spent hours reading.

In order to do this we're going to have to roll out the changes through a deprecation cycle
since most companies that are using Mesos have tooling around the project that assume certain
names. I'd like to propose that we have completed the renaming _internally_ in the project
by the 1.0 release but that we keep some of the externally visible names (e.g., directory
names, REST endpoints, etc) available for backwards compatibility. This will give people an
opportunity to phase out the use of the names themselves.

We'll use this ticket to capture sub tickets that need to get performed. I'm really looking
forward to getting everyone in the community involved to help complete this, thanks in advance
for everyone's patience and encouragement!

> TL;DR - Computers sharing work should be a good thing. Using the language of human bondage
and suffering is inappropriate in this context. It also has the potential to alienate users
and community members.
