DevRespectOps: Removing Harmful Language from Jenkins and CloudBees CI

Session Description

Several racist terms have become standard IT, including “master”, “slave” “whitelist”, “blacklist.” Unfortunately, these terms are used in Jenkins and CloudBees CI. This past year we increased efforts to replace these harmful terms. Members of the team working on this project will present the current status of the work, as well as share lessons learned, and tools/techniques created in the process. We understand that changing words does not solve discrimination, however we believe it is necessary in order to have an inclusive space for all.
