Very thorough summary of all usual conventions. Just want to add after the Black Lives Matter movement, git provided option to use names other than master, the option is: git init --initial-branch=stable. Hence technically speaking master is deprecated in favour of other names such as stable or main.

You mean after the Black Lives Matter movement. It's not a 'thing'. smh
Very helpful post though, what do you think about emojis in commits? I have seen a lot on the issue lately.

Sure you are right, since English is not my native language 😅. The correct word is movement, and thanks. I edited my original reply.

Liked "No worries", considering the OP was made with the best of intentions.
