a bunch of techbros threw a shit fit about python replacing all occurrences of master/slave terminology with parent/worker last year and they did it anyway which owns


ok but why is this "parent" with worker

why not something like "manager"

are we enforcing capitalism in python now

@ben well to be more specific they now use parent/child in reference to subprocesses and they use "worker" instead of "slave" for background processes iirc


@dankwraith @ben hasn't parent/child always been the correct terminology for subprocesses anyway

why were they doing something else

@00dani @dankwraith [posix process voice] brb killing my children to let them know the config file was updated
