> The gluster code base has some words and terminology (blacklist,
> whitelist, master, slave etc.) that can be considered hurtful/offensive
> to people in a global open source setting. Some of words can be fixed
> trivially but the Geo-replication code seems to be something that needs
> extensive rework. More so because we have these words being used in the
> CLI itself. Two questions that I had were:
> 1. Can I replace master:slave with primary:secondary everywhere in the
> code and the CLI? Are there any suggestions for more appropriate
Primary:secondary looks good to me.
> 2. Is it okay to target the changes to a major release (release-9) and
> *not* provide backward compatibility for the CLI?
> I think that should be good. This also needs a change tool/scripts which
uses geo-rep like geo-rep scheduler script.
