Replace "master" and "slave" terms in Redis · Issue #3185

This issue from Redis Github project generated a lot of comments but Antirez says it all:
  • If I would start Redis from scratch I would pick a different terminology.
  • Now to switch would be too confusing: change of API, documentation, and so forth. We have a big tradition of backward compatibility to the point you can run in Redis 3.2 an application written for the first Redis beta released 7 years ago.
  • Redis has a SALVEOF NO ONE command that was designed on purpose as a freedom message.
