A number of developers have asked that we follow the new git and Github conventions and switch our default branch from master to main.
Github has already switched:
and we now have new repos created with the new default name, thus now introducing a level of inconsistency that will only get worse.
- Change the dev guide https://developer.lsst.io/work/flow.html#the-master-branch
- Propose we ask TCAMs to organize a day (it's the kind of thing we used to do at team all-hands) to switch existing repos and other documentation references.
(Indigenous People day is Oct 12, just saying and many (most?) of us don't have employers who observe it so there's an idea)
