      Description

      In the spirit of our recent changes to Primary/Replica naming, we should also change other terminology in our ecosystem. One that immediately comes to mind in SkySQL is the "Whitelist". I suggest this is changed to "allowlist" and any references to "blacklist", instead be "denylist"

      This is something other companies have done already, so it isn't a totally wild suggestion:
