If you’ve migrated the default branch of your git repository from master to main, please delete the master branch and ensure that the main branch is set as the default in your git remote host (e.g., GitHub, etc.) so people don’t accidentally base their contributions on the master branch.
If you do a git branch --move, you won’t have the above issue.
Here’s a good guide for all this, including updating your local settings so that git init uses main instead of master: https://www.hanselman.com/blog/easily-rename-your-git-default-branch-from-master-to-main
I always saw that name in github as in "master crafter" or in "mastery". I mean only tested robust and seasoned code should be on there.
I mean, ok master/slave in replication or workload delegation is obviously a reference to slavery but here?
Well, I understand the feeling, but I'm a "get confortable being inconfortable" kind of guy when justified. In this specific issue, ( french native, still learning English and French) I don't think "mastery" implies being a teacher, boss or trainer. ( May be wrong) so in that case, I believe there is room for nuance in the term.
Master-expert : nice
And I'm fond of keeping nuance in the world.
I loved that many projects spent a comparable time putting "Black lives matter" banners on their homepages at the time helping spread the word. This, seemed to me like a more productive and frankly, clearer way to address the issue.
