The default #git branch is called `master`. What're people using as a better replacement?

Funny is good, but not too silly, has to be sorta profesh.

@ebel There's sometimes a difference between main/master and stable, in that stable is meant for numbered releases that have undergone user testing, whereas main is where features get merged
Your usage might vary, especially if you use tags to signal stable (as in please use this one in production) versions

@gaeel yes, that's how I'd read/understand the terms.

I mostly mean β€œI like the idea of having a branch that's always the latest stable so people can check that out”
