    On the up side, stuff like this should encourage everyone to move their repos to self-hosted software that won't arbitrarily move your cheese around for dubious, non-technical reasons. It's far better to laugh at this sort of thing from a distance.

      Best advice I've heard all day. If we've learned anything in recent years, it's that Big Tech is not on our side. Better to self-host essential services than rely on Big Tech Dictators in Ivory Towers.

It will be more satisfying and interesting than arguing with these trolls. It might even be educational. Highly recommended.
        Yes, being "educated" by infantile cartoons with no regard for historical fact does sound like it'd be just your speed. Enjoy!

          The change here is that they will suggest "main" as the default branch name for new git repositories, existing repositories will be unaffected. You can also decide to use whatever branch name you prefer - nobody is being forced to do anything.

              Now scripts need lines to account for master and main depending on if the software was made pre or post woke. It's the woke version of compatibility profiles.

                It's got nothing to do with whether a project uses master/main as its default branch name - scripts intended to run across multiple repositories have needed to account for a configurable default branch name since this became possible in git.

                But again, no existing repos will be changed by this, so no scripts will break. Even if you want your scripts to stay hard-coded to use 'master' as the default branch name, you can choose 'master' as your default branch name when creating a new repository.

                  I hope the US can solve their racism issues soon, if this helps (I don't believe it does) I wouldn't mind dumbing down my vocabulary...

                    Good on GitLab. Perhaps I don't need this in my .gitconfig soon.

                    Code:
                    [B]❯[/B] grep -A 1 init ~/.gitconfig
                    
                    [init]
                    
                    defaultBranch = main
                    I'll still use mine. I care about well-being of people of color.

                    Code:
                    [init]
                    
                    defaultBranch = racism

                      i guess master should be blacklisted as a branchname
