Issue #15843 has been updated by duerst (Martin D=FCrst).


Please not only give us a schedule, but tell us exactly (in terms of git co=
mmands) what this means for people which are not *totally* familiar with gi=
t. Please do NOT assume that everybody "just knows". =

Misc #15843: Make "trunk" a symbolic-ref of "master" on git.ruby-lang.org
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15843#change-78191

----------------------------------------
## Background

* We're using `trunk` branch as a canonical development branch because it h=
as been mirrored to there by git-svn.
* In a usual git repository, a HEAD branch is `master` by default. Using `t=
runk` instead of `master` is confusing and causes typo on git operations or=
 typing git-related URLs.
* We can make an *alias branch* by using symbolic-ref on `git.ruby-lang.org=
:ruby.git`. We can start using `master` branch without disturbing any `trun=
k` usage. Why not use it?

## Proposed schedule

* 2019
  * 5/22: Announce this schedule *(done)*
  * 5/23: Make `master` symbolic-ref pointing to `trunk` on git.ruby-lang.o=
rg *(done)*
  * 5/23~6/30: Ask maintainers of CI (or whatever integrated with the repos=
itory) to explicitly use `master` branch instead of `trunk` at ruby-core ma=
iling list. *(asked)*
  * 7/1: Switch HEAD on git.ruby-lang.org from `trunk` to `master`, and rev=
erse the symbolic-ref direction (change the default branch of GitHub ruby/r=
uby to `master` too)
     * `sudo -u git bash -c "cd /var/git/ruby.git && mv refs/heads/trunk re=
fs/heads/master && git symbolic-ref refs/heads/trunk refs/heads/master"`
* 2020
  * 1/1: Drop `trunk` branch on git.ruby-lang.org
     * `sudo -u git bash -c "cd /var/git/ruby.git && rm refs/heads/trunk"`
