Event Timeline

All of the examples given are either integration with other code that uses these terms, or test cases that we copied from Wikipedia pages. There is nothing to do here.

@Reedy per what @matmarex shared in T277938#6934292, it appears to us that any usage of blacklist and whitelist within Discussiontools' codebase comes from extensions that are using these terms in their codebases.

It is for this reason that we are assuming, there is nothing for us to do until those aforementioned extensions change their naming conventions.

If any of the assumptions we've made are incorrect, please let us know. We appreciate the effort here and want to be a part of it.
