    1. I completely understand that master have two meanings: A man who has people working for him, especially servants or slaves; and An original recording, film, or document from which copies can be made.
    2. I think it's just a bad English/mis-translation problem. I'm guessing @pmmmwh assumed 'master' meant like 主 in 奴隸主 (slave owner/master). Actually a better translation would be 師 like 功夫大師 (Kung Fu master). The specimen copies are made from.
    3. The specimen copies are made from.
    4. In the context of git, the word "master" is not used in the same way as "master/slave". I've never known about branches referred to as "slaves" or anything similar.

    1. As we advocate in our Agile Product Management overview, the more involved that a product manager is with the development team, the better. That involvement should be along the lines of a product owner who champions customer needs, the "why" of the product. When the involvement blurs into tasking, the "how" for a team, then there is a problem. Even with the best of intentions, this kind of utilization mindset tends to hide problems: defects, hand-offs, and unknowns. Interleaving scope and process tends toward locking scope, schedule, and quality. That's a recipe for failure.
      • The [[Product Manager answers the why]]
      • The [[Scrum Master answers the how]]
    2. When starting out with scrum, it can be a huge help to have someone in the role who has seen scrum working before. Better yet, has seen many examples of it working. For this reason, scrum masters are often hired as consultants, rather than as full-time employees.

    1. Added `Array#union` and `Array#difference` instance method.

      It appears that this PR built on (was based on) https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/1747/files.

      That seems perfectly reasonably to me in this case. Better than creating 2 completely independent PRs that both modified some of the same lines (requiring/forcing a conflict).

      The only downside is that it arbitrarily chooses one PR to be the parent of the other, when they should more intuitively be thought of as siblings/co-equals.

      I like how both PRs both say that they "This solves partially https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/14097"

    1. Nor can any animal utter any sound which we cannot explain, or tell from what emotion, or passion it proceeds. This distinguish­ing faculty was necessary to man as master of the animal race

      Man is the master of the world

      Important to note is that it is man's understanding of languages which other animals make but cannot understand across biological family.

      This would be complicated by the fact that animals are doing all sorts of communication we have no idea about.
