Re: Default branch names in git urls

Martin Jansa

The difference is that only few upstream repos are renaming master to main while removing the master branch completely and the change of the default branch to main affects only newly created repos on github (so they are not used in any recipe yet).

While shutting down the git:// protocol on github will affect every recipe which uses it (a lot of recipes) across all OE releases.

There is even bigger issue with git repos from now:

I don't think this is a bigger issue because I don't see this warranting a default change. It is just an upstream protocol support change and we will update the respective recipes. If we don't, January will force us to. Maybe, we should have a warning in git fetcher for GitLab on the git protocol? I reckon it is reasonable to push people to update their recipes.
