    K. What fucken bitch types all git commands these days.

    And now let's get started. What the actual fuck. So the problem is, that it offends you, that you get remembered about your grandgrandgrandfathers history and how he got beaten by a white man when you have to type the word master? How fucken crybaby can you get dude.

    Like I hate sports. But I have to see those fucken girls doing their shit, selling me leggings on tv.
    My grandpa didn't get to study because of the DDR-BRD shit in Germany back in the days. Am I supposed to throw myself on the ground and whine as soon as I see an advertisement about universities?

    Holy shit y'all fuckers need to just leave. You chose the wrong field buddy, if this is what makes you mad when doing tech pls just go we don't need you, YOU SUCK, JUST PISS OFFFFF ALREADY.

    GET YOUR ASS TOGETHER YOU BITCHES. YOU DON'T SOLVE ANY PROBLEM, YOU MAKE MORE GRANDPA WOULD BE SAD, HE WOULD NOT SUPPORT YOUR BITCHASS OPINION AT ALL!

    @nitwhiz They are bitching about the word "master"? What a bunch of idiots.
  • 9
    I CAN'T GET BEHIND IT PLS ONE OF THESE FUCKS NEEDS TO EXPLAIN THIS TO ME.

    So why would you be mad? Dude I'd have a laughter if I had to type the feature/bullied-in-school branch name all day. Even THOUGH I ACTUALLY SURVIVED BEING BULLIED NOT LIKE YOU FUCKASSES BEING ALL TRIGGERED AND BITCHY ABOUT STUFF YOUR TEACHER TOLD YOU SOME DAY.

    Just find me 5 black people in tech supporting this master-slave renaming with a good argument or two. Then maybe I think about shutting up.
    And then you find me 5 jews in tech who'd have a problem with how puush names it's screenshots (ss_datetime.png)

    SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU FUCKTARDS HOLY SHIT NOW I'M TRIGGERED BECAUSE OF YOUR SHIIIIT

    In all seriousness though, as an alternative to replacing master/slave, how bout we just don't give a shit about some metaphore and move onto more pressing matters?
  • 4
    And in git "master" is not even a control thing, it's like a recording master. It's a standard, a reference.

    Found another one. People are dead fucking serious about replacing master apparently (it will blow over)

    Well I'd be pissed too if my branches had both uppercasing and underscores.

    @theuser You are inspiring me today. I now want to get a masters degree in something. I don't care what, I just want to say it to people. A lot.

    @theuser
    Hanselman's wife and daughters are black, so you'll continue to see this from him.

    Disclaimer: I use trunk based development, and our root is "trunk," so I have no dog in this fight.

    I do however not like main. If this is going to be a thing, master needs to become "senpai", feature branches need to become "kohai," and PRs need to become notices. The emails should therefore read "I hope senpai will notice kohai/feature"

    Jesus fuck

    Slave has an obvious meaning, so while I disagree with erasing our vocabulary I can see it being debated. But master has a lot of meanings, and git doesn't have "slave" branches, so quite obviously master here doesn't mean slave-owner.

    While we're at word magic, I hate the frenzy around the n-word. The concept that only black people can use it creates a situation where it's a privilege, which is the opposite of what you want if you actually think it's a slur.

    @Lor-inc I also understand that the word "cracker" originally referred to Irish descent people who were known to crack jokes. Until an ignorant person co-opted the word for their own racist ends. Yet people are always blaming white people for co-opting everyone else's culture.

    This idea of borders around race is in itself a racist ideology.

    @Demolishun The word you're looking for is corruption, to corrupt something in verb form.

    So this is about not defaulting to "master" for the autogenerated first branch of a GIT repo?
    The proposed "main" is shorter and all branches are equal in GIT anyways.
    Did he actually sent a pull request to the current GIT maintainer?

    @Oktokolo The change isn't worth the hassle. Keep in mind that changing standards inherently means concurrent standards.
  • 0
    @Lor-inc
    This time, the change would actually be trivial because all GIT tools already just work on what is currently checked out and therefore the name of the first branch isn't likely to be hardcoded anywhere outside GIT.
    Also the proposed change would only alter the default name on initial branch creation, wich by its very nature can't affect repos wich already contain any commits.
  • 0
    @Oktokolo I'd argue main is generally speaking not a technically accurate term compared to master. Since "main" implies the branch that is primarily (i.e. "this is main branch, you'll be committing to this most of the time"), vs "master" has a more "don't touch this" connotation. But then again, it really depends on the individual repo.
  • 0
    @chabad360
    Well, the first branch in a repo actually does attract the most commits over the lifetime of most projects. As that implies that it is the most touched branch at the end, having a "don't touch this" connotation would actually be misleading...
    So you are actually arguing in favor of "main" instead of "master".

    1. so how come he doesn't also have a "niceperson" alias for git?

    2. sacking this guy won't solve world problems but it sure will make life better for anyone who won't have to listen to his oversensitive ideological agenda anymore.

    I’m not necessarily in tech yet but I am around it. The word slave and the n-word are triggering in ways you all could never understand. Shit the word trigger is triggering in itself.
    Not at all surprised to see a (presumably) white Guy unnecessarily bring up his thoughts about the n word but again if you haven’t lived a life where people expect subservience out of you due to societal norms and subjects covered in elementary that subtly reinforce those beliefs. Or experience the situations and pure negative energy encompassed in every situation in which a white person weaponizes the nword couldn’t expect you to feel the same. However would hope such smart people would be able to understand and not question our humanity but undermining our emotions.
    As for renaming branches I’ve honestly never thought of it and don’t really care as I’m sure many other black people in or around tech feel even being at this point took having tougher skin than that.

    @bootcamptears I understand that slave and the n-word are triggering. What I don't understand is black people making the n-word a privilege rather than a real taboo by using it, and I also think that "master" shouldn't be a trigger word. Because "master" is a term used in context of a hierarchy, and hierarchies are normal. That slave societies happen to be hierarchies shouldn't invalidate this word.

    @Lor-inc I addressed my thoughts on the master thing in my last line previously, don’t care. The same ‘privilege’ created by us being able to use the word is like when you call a friend a son of a bitch, motherfucker or some other term that’s normally an insult. If you don’t know the person you’re gonna be taken back, but if you’ve shared some type of life experience i.e. systemic racism and oppression you’ll feel more like it’s a term of endearment due to said experience. Can also still be a slight insult depending on how it’s used...It’s like that except it’s just for black people. I also wish people would stop bringing this up for the sake of it, it is what it is. I would never use the f-word nor question gay people’s disdain for it due to a pretty basic level of respect and compassion.

    Banning words gives them power.

    There are legitimate uses for slave in many other contexts. It describes a relationship between objects and even people (in a positive light even). For instance, Paul describes himself as a slave to Christ. Meaning, Paul did not own himself, Christ owns him. Aesop was also a slave and describes himself as such. Yet he has wisdom beyond what most people ever attain. Yet do we know who owned Aesop? In devices it describes specific relationship. A slave takes instruction or command from a master device. Slave is a completely descriptive word for this relationship.

    When I was a kid I didn't understand there was a difference between people's skin color. I picked that garbage up watching TV and movies. If you want lasting change we need to fix that shit first. Like someone said in another thread the biggest perpetrator of racist ideology has been the main stream media and movies.
