    tree-wide: Replace usages of whitelist/blacklist · d2b13378
    Matthew Leeds authored
    This commit replaces usages of the terms whitelist and blacklist with
    allowlist and blocklist, which are both more inclusive and more precise.
    This terminology change has been implemented across many projects.[1][2]
    There is one place we can't remove the term blacklist because it is
    there for backwards compatibility, in plugins/core/gs-appstream.c
    This commit causes three types of API breaks and therefore should not be
    backported to stable branches.
    1) The plugin-whitelist and plugin-blacklist CLI parameters have been
       renamed. These do not show up in Debian Code Search anywhere.
    2) The environment variables GNOME_SOFTWARE_PLUGINS_WHITELIST and
       GNOME_SOFTWARE_PLUGINS_BLACKLIST have been renamed. These are for
       debugging and also don't show up in Debian Code Search.
    3) The hardcoded-blacklist plugin has been renamed which means the
       associated file is now libgs_plugin_hardcoded-blocklist.so which may
       require distributions to change their packaging.
