It's unclear to me what this patch is for & why it's needed.

Yesterday in your v2 27/27 series you sent a different one that changed
this from s/master/main/g:

That's on top of "next", but this one is on "master", the two would
conflict, and the 02/27 one seems like the right thing to do.

It seems to me the actual name matters a lot, and it must whatever the
default branch name is.

I.e. what the test is doing is producing intentionally broken config,
and asserting that we don't read it at an early stage.

Therefore if we regressed and started doing that the test wouldn't catch
it, because the default branch name is "master", or "main" if/when that
refs.c change lands, neither of which is "topic".

Maybe I'm missing something but it seems 58ebccb478 ("t1309: use short
branch name in includeIf.onbranch test", 2019-08-06) and your own
85fe0e800c ("config: work around bug with includeif:onbranch and early
config", 2019-07-31) which added the test support reading.
