Changing default branch name on GitHub - possible action required

Kumar Gala

We will be changing the default branch on github from ‘master' to ‘main' on Friday (Mar 11, 2021).

There is no action required for any open PRs, however you’ll need to update your local git clone as follows:

git branch -m master main
git fetch origin
git branch -u origin/main main

Will announce here when this change is made on Friday.
