Considering the global news of the past few weeks, many tech companies have been replacing legacy terms like 'master' to other terms line 'main' or 'primary'. Github is working on it. Is this something Codeberg plans on doing?
This should be included in Gitea 1.11.6 and 1.12 https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/pull/10803 (applies to new repository creation). It's already working on codeberg-test
I'm glad to see we quickly adopted this small but important change. I propose to change the default as well, e.g. to "main" or "trunk".
1.12 release candidate is already tested on https://codeberg-test.org, will launch here as soon it is stable.
There still seem to be some issues with db migration, we are looking into this (database upgrade very slow, implying potential downtime we would like to avoid during upgrade).
Thanks for pointing out that this can be done in Git. I didn't see the ability to create new branches in the Codeberg/Gitea interface, but was able to get Atom to do it, then in Codeberg I made the new branches as the defaults.
Small changes like these accumulate, and while they may not get rid of racism forever, they help make it less systemic.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
