      Description

      Inspired by the comments on this PR:

      https://github.com/django/django/pull/2692

      Summary is: `master` and `slave` are racially charged terms, and it would be good to avoid them. Django have gone for `primary` and `replica`. But we also have to deal with what we now call multi-master setups. I propose "peer to peer" as a replacement, or just "peer" if you're describing one node.

      As far as I can tell, the primary work here is the docs. The wiki and any supporting material can be updated after.
