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

Yes, Stefan, certainly we should discuss this, sorry for racing ahead.  The context here is that I’m trying to finalize the schema for our errata release. I do not want this schema to refer to our ‘master’ branch and propose that we update it to reference ‘main’.


There is a clear trend industry-wide to make this change and I definitely do think we should align with that.


Aditya’s suggestion is great, I was not aware that renaming in this way was required to provide the compatibility option, important information.


Unfortunately, I don’t have sufficient permissions to rename the default ‘master’ branch to ‘main’, perhaps Chet Ensign does.


In any event, as per Stefan’s appeal, we can discuss as a group on Thursday. I will plan to finalize the errata schema optimistically referencing ‘main’: doing this won’t commit us to anything immediately, however, as we have other docs work to do there.

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.

      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.
