The maintainers previously discussed renaming ‘master’ Git branches to ‘main’ in line with more respectful terminology usage. This has already been done for the website repository, but it was a little too disruptive to do it to the Graphviz code repository at the same time.
I think we’re past any obstacles to this, and I propose we do this immediately after the upcoming 2.47.0 release. This shouldn’t have a large impact, though you will need to edit any outstanding Merge Requests to retarget their destination branch. FYI Gitlab has made ‘main’ the default for new repositories.
Please comment if you have any questions or concerns.
