The default branch is called `master`. What're people using as a better replacement?

Funny is good, but not too silly, has to be sorta profesh.


Thanks for all your suggestions! Most people suggest using “main” instead of “master” for the default branch name. I'll start doing that, and try to unlearn a lot of muscle memory. 😛

lol, using “head” as a git branch name instead of “master” would be funny

@ebel For networking stuff instead of master/slave I've used leader/follower.

and now I'm wondering if we can change male and female gendered cables with "inny" and "outy"

@ebel How can we configure git to do this by default in future repositories?
