Git(Hub) default branch name is now ‘main’

So, a little late to the party, but today I found GitHub’s default branch name to be main instead of the previous master. The change happens to switch to a less hurtful language, as can be read e.g. on the IETF document Terminology, Power and Oppressive Language. GitHub themselves switches all their repositories. Time to follow up, so I’ll start by updating all my repositories as well.

Addendum: Well, things spread. Even Firefox renamed the browser’s master password to primary password. Nice to see.
