[OT] master/slave debate in Python


Hello,
My opinion is that the terms "master/slave" describe well some situations.
They could be seen by some people as offensive (although unfortunately
sometimes true, even today) when applied to persons. But it is not
offensive when applied to processes in a computer. They are not living
entities.

I would say that when talking about programming, the terms have a
perfect meaning. Otherwise, what is the correct way to use the words
master and slave? Not using them?

Best
