I think we'll do that when it is the common practice, probably for all repositories at once; so far, git still creates repositories with the same name for the default branch.

Hi, it becomes a common practice to make the default git branch "main" instead of "master".

I would like to request, for the gpaint git repo

to make the main branch the default branch instead of master. Please let me know how to do it, or if you can do it for me, please go ahead.  Thanks
