Glad to hear that. That doesn't seem to be the perspective that others
have in this discussion thread though, especially since Theodore Ts'o
referred to "...the "master" -> "main" migration" in his comment that
I quoted above.

Thanks for trying to respond to my questions, but I think your
responses are mostly misdirected towards an issue that I was not
referring to. That being the configurability of the default branch
name, which I doubt anyone has a problem with, as opposed to changing
the default branch name for all newly created repositories and
possibly for the git repo itself for some supposed offensiveness of
the word "master". That is what I consider silly.

For example, when I asked "So we're changing the default branch name
from "master" to "main"?" and then followed that up with "For what
purpose?", the latter question was asking "For what purpose are we
changing the default branch name from "master" to "main"?", and then
"What problem are we trying to solve by changing the default branch
name from "master" to "main"?" etc.
