      Description

      A number of developers have asked that we follow the new git and Github conventions and switch our default branch from master to main. 

      Background:

      https://sfconservancy.org/news/2020/jun/23/gitbranchname/

      Github has already switched:

      https://github.com/github/renaming

      and we now have new repos created with the new default name, thus now introducing a level of inconsistency that will only get worse. 

      RFC to:

      1. Change the dev guide https://developer.lsst.io/work/flow.html#the-master-branch
      2. 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)
