Layer Properties dialog, open legend tab. Currently, there's a transparency slider widget available. Add it to the used widget part. You still have a copy of this widget in the "available" part, meaning that you can add as many as you want, which is useless given that there's actually only one slider.
Once added to the used widget, I think it should be removed from the left panel

Actually this was done intentionally... Assuming that for some widgets it would make sense to have more than one of the same type, just with different configuration. However if that is confusing, we could remove the used widgets from list of available ones...

I do not have a strong opinion on removal. I not yet see all the potential of this widget so maybe it makes sense to keep it.
However, currently, moving one slider does move the second one too. They are synchrone. This is not expected, right?

No. Not for every ticket tag is/was tagged as "master".
There was an unfortunate time when we had "master" used when we had both 2.* master and 3.* master.

Today Jurgen made a search and found that we created the branch that eventually become QGIS 3 was create at the start of July 2016. So any ticket filed against "master" before that date is was certainly filed with QGIS 2 master. This tickets were closed as EOL, the ones tagged as "master" but filed after the start of July 2016 were put in feedback. This ticket was filed June 6 2016, so it was QGIS 2 master.
