Discussion on: Github is replacing the word master to avoid slavery references. Deal with it.

I'm not against the change, it's not a big deal and I feel very uncomfortable with this absurd backlash. If you don't like it, okay, I get it, git's "master" doesn't relate to "master/slave", I get it, but the name itself is actually not very good and it changing the term doesn't hurt either.
