Subject: Re: [sarif] Re: SARIF repository primary branch is now 'main'

Sharing to ease thinking about a good, matching name before we talk about how and when: https://github.com/sthagen/valid-branch-names

My question was mostly practical (the one asking for branch off and merge to) - I understand I should use master as before.

PS: For the elderly like me, tag like branches could remind us of the good old times, like <xml> at https://github.com/sthagen/valid-branch-names/tree/%3Cxml%3E

Sharing in case this helps before we discuss in person: GitHub now allows you to rename the existing `master` branch to `main`, rather than making a copy named `main`. If you do this, it will update most references, PRs, and links automatically, though local clones will still need to be updated manually.
Here are the GitHub docs on the topic: https://docs.github.com/en/repositories/configuring-branches-and-merges-in-your-repository/managing-branches-in-your-repository/renaming-a-branch

      I will add this discussion to the agenda.

      Since the industry in general is moving from master to main, it is
a good idea to align with current practice, though there may be various
ideas about how to migrate.
