Subject: [PATCH 2/4] *: use singular they in comments
Date: Mon, 07 Jun 2021 16:57:46 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <b36e3f99716bf3976fc886df684c300e17566c79.1623085069.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.975.git.1623085069.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Derrick Stolee <dstolee@microsoft.com>

Several comments in our code refer to an anonymous user with "he/him" or
"she/her" pronouns, and the choice between the two is arbitrary.

Replace these uses with "they/them" which universally includes all
potential readers.
