I work in Software, and we use "master/slave" as terms. We had one task where we needed to make one software component the "master" of another "slave". The task's name was "Mastering Component X".
To me, this doesn't make sense because it sounds like someone is becoming proficient in the subject of "Component X". What we want to say is that we want "Component X" to be authoritative, or make it a master of "Component Y".
Is there a single word that can express this meaning, or shall I use a phrase like "Make Component X authoritative"?
