Subject Terminology: "worker" vs "slave"
Date Fri, 03 Jan 2014 06:39:33 GMT
The terms worker and slave seem to be used interchangeably.  Are they the
same?

Worker is used more frequently in the codebase:

aash@aash-mbp ~/git/spark$ git grep -i worker | wc -l
     981
aash@aash-mbp ~/git/spark$ git grep -i slave | wc -l
     348
aash@aash-mbp ~/git/spark$

Does it make sense to unify on one or the other?
