This may be worth considering changing.

If a hosting provider (e.g. GitHub) decides to configure an initial
branch (e.g. main) it would be nice for "git clone" to have
information about that initial branch so the user doesn't have to
change it manually to please the provider's aesthetics.

So the instructions could be:

  git clone $url .
  echo "# myproject" >> README.md
  git add README.md
  git commit -m "first commit"
  # git branch -M main # this step would not be necessary
  git push -u origin HEAD

Personally I don't care about this. But others might find it useful.

Cheers.
