Not a fan of this change, I would need to hear/read that that Git master branch feature creator was a racist and that's the reason why he/she created it that way, I mean, it is a reference name, and a whole bunch of tools, thrid-party or custom, use the master branch as the default, this will be a little messy.
Anyway, if we are talking about intentions, let's do it, why is Git changing the master branch till now, 2020, and not 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, or 10 years ago?.
I see 2 bullets:
Really?, Git did not was born racist and slave full, are people who turned it racist and slave full today.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
