Description

as discussed in ESC today:

  • rename master to main in git? (Stephan)
    + LLVM already did this
    + how far should we go there? (Cloph)
    + do we look bad if we don’t do anything? (Stephan)
    + when creating a new branch: (Cloph)
    + IRC notify, tinderbox, .gitreview, documentation (wiki e.g.) (Sophie)
    + dashboard data may be tricky (Cloph)
    + in favor of doing it (Michael S)
    AI: + file a TDF infra ticket on redmine (Michael S)
    + to get input from infra
    + prefer to get 7.1 out of the door first (Cloph)

so this mainly requires adapting infra things like CI etc. to the new branch name, but hopefully the effort required should be rather small (and of course it's not the most urgent task in the world).
