Re: Proposal to Rename the Primary Branch on all Cloud Foundry repos

I agree with Jesse. Renaming from `master` is a great idea which I strongly support. `main` is similar but more inclusive, but perhaps we can take the opportunity to increase the semantic meaning of the branch names.

Could we consider using `develop` (and/or, where appropriate, `release` and version-specific branches) instead?

 

In addition to being problematic, `master` is confusing, as it means different things in different processes.

 

`develop`/`release` makes it clear what branch you're supposed to push/merge to.

 

As an example, `cf-deployment` currently has `develop` and `master`, with `master` being effectively a release branch - all releases are ff-only merges tagged on `master` with a version number. `main` would be less clear than `release` in this case - and, I suspect, in many others.

Hi all,

 

I am also in support of this change after enquiring on slack.

 

Cheers

Hey all,

I would like to propose that the cloud foundry projects rename the primary branch on all https://github.com/cloudfoundry and https://github.com/cloudfoundry-incubator repos to “main” as part of Cloud Foundry’s commitment to an inclusive and welcoming community.

I believe some project teams independently have plans to invest in making this change.

Thoughts? Feedback?

-Dieu
