GitHub has replaced ‘master’ with ‘main’. The Microsoft-owned coding site GitHub has dropped the term “master” from its systems on its service with a neutral term like “main”. GitHub used the term “master” for the primary version of a source code repository.
GitHub repositories are where developers and organizations store and synchronize their source code projects. Approximately, 50 million developers use GitHub around the world and it is indeed the most used version-control platform in the world.
By default, GitHub used the term “_master_” for the primary version of a source code repository. Developers used to make copies of the “_master_” on their computers into which they used to add their code, and then merge the changes back into the “_master_” repo.
