Moving Openfire Github repositories from master to main branch

I’d like to propose we rename the primary branch on Ignite Realtime’s Openfire Github repositories from master to main. This change aligns our Open Source projects with the vast majority of other projects that have made this change and this change also affirms more inclusive terminology.

I’m proposing to effort this work in two weeks (21 April), unless reasonable objections are made here as to why this would be a bad change.


We still use master in our projects. I never understood the reason to change in the first place. IMHO it was unnecessary hype. So if it was me I wouldn’t bother as it changes nothing.

main isn’t more inclusive than master. They all denote superiority. Again I don’t see any real benefit in the change. But hey, am just a user so you can safely ignore this comment if you choose to!
