Subject Re: IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PEOPLE RUNNING TRUNK re: [Bug 7826] Improve language around whitelist/blacklist and master/slave

As a woman engineer, retired, after many years in industry even "gents" does not 
bother me. It goes with the territory. And if I had a dollar for every time I 
heard "you guys" from a woman talking to other women I'd be almost as rich as 
poor man Biden.

Political correctness has no place in engineering. Clarity of communications is 
a basis of the craft. When you disrupt it things break. (eg Mars landers)
