Most repos use the branch
master as their default, but Git doesn’t force this upon you and why should we? Now you can change it to whatever you want. This means two things (using ant as an example):
- http://github.com/apache/ant redirects to http://github.com/apache/ant/tree/trunk
- git clone git://github.com/apache/ant.git will have
trunkchecked out by default
