The Software Freedom Conservancy and the Git project released a statement in 2020 explaining that the initial branch name “master” is offensive to some users because of its historical context.
We agree with the statement, so we are changing how we do things in Backlog. We want all users around the world to feel good about the way they work every day.
For Git repositories created in Backlog on or after June 7th, the initial/default branch will be named “main” instead of “master”.
Note: Repositories created before this date will not be affected by the change.
