Please do rename the "master" branch to "Führer". The umlaut will probably catch a bunch of applications that aren't UTF-8 ready.

    'Master branch' in German would be 'Hauptzweig' or something. Try and pronounce that!

    I find it offensive that you are saying something is not "complient". It's opressive. UTF-8 is not any better than UTF-7 or UTF-9.

    I demand that we stop using names of technical standars, they are all equal!

    In all seriousness, this is probably the best way to prevent the change. Lots and lots of backlash is sometimes the answer.

    @unspoiledbrat in Uni we were told to use Master/worker, although I don’t know how that’s any better

    @dder , That don't even make sense. "I am a worker, I need to report to my master". WTF?

    I think we just need to replace everything with random character sequences.

    Master branch: kldfg99383jldfs0###

    Development branch: llls04)¤¤lkkdwww

    Also for the hardware, master and slave ports are to be renamed to "that port" and "that other port".

    @thatDude also it’s that thinking of one thing leads and other things do things according to the leader... that also fucks people off...
    Oh maybe also I should not use the term “leader”... could be mixed up with hitler easily...

    Point is: that fucks me off! Just be specific on that thinks and stop implying shit where there is none. Don’t you have better things todo ? Seriously.

    @thatDude The constructed "otherness" of the so called "other port" is very problematic.
