There's been talk of changing a Git repo's default branch, currently called "master."
You may say to yourself, "What a load of horse poo!" Or "I'll have to update my scripts/CI pipeline and that will take some man hours to do."
But then if you are ready to change over, you may be wondering...
- What name do we choose for our new default branch? Main? Latest? Primary?
- What eldritch recipe or complex list of steps must we follow to do this?
- Will our project break?
Look, Scott Hanselman has you covered. It's maybe 30 seconds of work per repo.
