re: Replacing master in git VIEW POST

re: Sure I did. Let me put it in other words: there is no slave in git, 'master' in git not originating from an offensive "master/slave wording". It is...

Reading this post I got really curious to find more about if the word master in git had relation with the master/slave terminology in tech. If you go to github.com/git/git, clone it and run git log -p --grep=slave, you'll see it does.

So yes, there is slave in git and it comes from master/slave wording. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Ok, you rename that poor master branch
But what you gonna do with this?

I'll do nothing at all. I just argued against your paragraph where you strongly said that the term's origin wasn't related to something, but it is, without providing sources. Which words people choose to have in their repositories/codebase is something that might reflect on their careers not mine. So, ask them.
