      There are no resources to solve some bugs, but there are resources to go removing "whitelists"...

          Sweet, good opportunity for some woke developers to start contributing to kernel source in meaningful manner. So many useful renames to do!

            What a sad day for our software culture.
            If anything, I will be more careful to use those "bad" and not-"inclusive" terms more often.

                Some replacements are not semantically equivalent. A leader gets work done as well, whereas a master doesn't, and merely delegates work to others and at best orchestrates it.

                  Open source was always the corporatization of Free software.
