Subject: [dpdk-dev] [RFC] doc: change to diverse and inclusive language
Date: Thu,  4 Jun 2020 14:02:00 -0700
Message-ID: <20200604210200.25405-1-stephen@networkplumber.org> (raw)

For diversity reasons, the DPDK should take every effort
to eliminate master and slave terminology. The actual code change
is just syntax, but it has bigger impacts.

Lets announce this now and do it in the next API changing
release.

+
+* eal: To be more inclusive in choice of naming, the DPDK project
+  will follow established diversity guidelines.
+  The code base will be changed to replace references to sexist
+  and offensive terms used in function, documentation and variable
+  names. This change will be progressive across several releases.
+
+  The immediate impact to the API/ABI is that references to
+  master and slave related to DPDK lcore will be changed to
+  primary and secondary.
+
+  For example: ``rte_get_master_lcore()`` will be renamed
+  to ``rte_get_primary_lcore()``.  For the 20.11, release
+  both names will be present and the old function will be
+  marked with the deprecated tag.
+
+  The macros related to primary and secondary lcore will also
+  be change:  ``RTE_LCORE_FOREACH_SLAVE`` will be replaced
+  with ``RTE_LCORE_FOREACH_SECONDARY``.
+
+  Drivers and source not governed by API/ABI policy will change
+  as soon as practical.
+
+  This change aligns DPDK with the MIT diversity guidelines:
+  https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~mjw/Language/NonSexist/vuw.non-sexist-language-guidelines.txt
+  and follows precedent of other open source projects: Django, Gnome,
+  ISC, Python, Rust
