Default git branch for wordpress/wordpress-develop

Last year the decision was made to move the default branches for official WordPress GitHub repositories from master to trunk. The necessary systems work for the svn to git sync has been completed and as of today, and git:// The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. have been updated to reflect the new default branchbranch A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses branches to store the latest development code for each major release (3.9, 4.0, etc.). Branches are then updated with code for any minor releases of that branch. Sometimes, a major version of WordPress and its minor versions are collectively referred to as a "branch", such as "the 4.0 branch"..

If you have a local checkout, you can take the following steps to update the default branch

$ git checkout master
$ git branch -m master trunk
$ git fetch
$ git branch --unset-upstream
$ git branch -u origin/trunk
$ git symbolic-ref refs/remotes/origin/HEAD refs/remotes/origin/trunk

Please note that and git:// along with a few others on github have not been updated yet. This post will be updated when that move is complete.
