I'm a little surprised by this.  It's not like slavery was acceptable when these computer science terms were coined and it's only comparatively recently that they've gone out of fashion.  On the other hand, there are some areas in computer software where "master" and "slave" are the exact technical terms (e.g. IDE), and avoiding them would lead to confusion.

Of the four citations you reference, one of them is a PR for Django, and three of them say "see the Django PR".  The Django PR is an unreadable infinitely-long page of miserable arguing.  So the context doesn't help much.

Have there been any actual complaints?  Or is this an attempt to solve a problem that doesn't really exist?
