In Git, starting with the latest version 2.28, there is an option to change
the default branch name from
master to something else, such as
git config --global init.defaultBranch main
What attracts me to this solution is that main is shorter and “rhymes”
with things from the Go world:
In general, switch to main in new projects.
git branch -m master main git fetch origin git branch -u origin/main main
