Have switched to coordinator/task as seen in review D35

I suppose at least 'worker' should imply someone being paid for their services.
I suppose at least 'worker' should imply someone being paid for their services. Maybe 'fitter' could also be an option in this case.
I think the first 3 you list don't really work very well in this context (as you say). However, 'coordinator/worker' describes rather well the relationship of the objects here.
A few alternatives to replace 'master' along the same lines could be 'manager', 'director', or 'controller'.
But I'm struggling to come up with other good alternatives to 'worker', which could maybe still be taken to be a bit pejorative? Maybe 'runner'? Any other ideas?
There are a few choices of replacements in the literature, some of which are listed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master/slave_(technology):

Thanks for the checks @dpohanlon. I've committed the required changes to the script to make it OK for python 3 in rLAURA5cbd960c5bb7.
Will wait to see if anyone else finds any problems, otherwise I'll merge this into master tomorrow.
Works fine with the LCG_96python3 environment (CMake 3.14.3) on CentOS 7 with GCC 8.3.0, and the Python GenFit3pi.py also works fine (after some '2to3').
I believe that this task is now completed.
@jback, @mwhitehe, @dpohanlon could one or more of you please test this and report back on this task?
The README has been updated with new instructions, so please clone the package, switch to the cmake branch and then try to follow those to build the library, examples and documentation. Try running some of the examples (including the python one) from the install location.
