Political correctness in the Python

Master and slave are replaced in the Python

A political correctness has already arrived in the IT. Even so fundamentally, that "offensive" terms master and slave has been newly replaced by neutral expressions parent and worker. It seems like funny thing, but this step was the end of a long and truly active debate within the Python development community. It can be assumed that this precedent will serve to massively replace the relevant terms in other projects as well. What do you think about this? More information


Kernel is bigger and bigger

The Linux Kernel has grown by 225 000 lines of code this year from around 3 300 contributors. Most of them were employees from Google, Intel, Red Hat, The Linux Foundation, Linaro, SUSE, Texas Instruments and AMD. The most active contributor was traditionally Linus Torvalds, who created more than 3% code lines. The Linux has over 25 million lines now. Quite big project, which started on one student´s pc.
