Thanks a lot fot your article! Now I changed main back to master! There's several reasons:
1 - Github changed default settings without asking my permissions for that
2 - in Russian (my native) language word "master" means "expert in his area", but "main" means "basic"
3 - i completely disagry with this new SJW-trends. Being a developer you better focus on good code, useful projects and doing good stuff, but not which name is better for your github branch - master or main.
