Subject: Re: Inclusive terminology usage in Spark

This was covered and mostly done last year:
In some instances, it's hard to change the terminology as it would break user APIs, and the
marginal benefit may not be worth it, but, have a look at the remaining task under that umbrella.

Terms such as Blacklist/Whitelist and master/slave is used at different places in Spark Code.
Wanted to know if there are any plans to modify this to more inclusive terminology, for eg:
Denylist/Allowlist and Leader/Follower? If so, what is the timeline?

I’ve also created an improvement ticket to track this.

Thanks and Regards,
