You gotta admit “trunk” would be a very on brand name for Mastodon’s default git branch

this is a joke, trunk is a very good idea 

@Gargron only if you name all of the other branches other parts of the mastodon, like foot, tail, eye, heart based on the levels of importance certain features are

this is a joke, trunk is a very good idea 

@wgahnagl @gargron Merging branch “spleen” into “right shoulder”

@Gargron please do some aggressive mastodon-tree metaphor mixing

@Gargron Please don't.

I prefer joining the list of "racists" by not changing by default branches:

@DarthChillash @Gargron

Oops, typo...

I prefer joining the list of "racists" by not changing *my* default branches:

Nobody is racist FFS. But this "movement" on Github is just plain stupid.

@DarthChillash @Gargron I think those left wings should start a campaign request all dictionaries remove all entries contain words that they think were negative connotations.

@JasonHK @Gargron I personally have a problem with black holes. These should be renamed to holes of color.


You do know that repo is a joke thread right? Seems like it flew over your head.

@ForTwelveSeconds Really? Maybe it's because English isn't my native language.


yeah, it’s a joke repo. Just a bunch of people in the issues thread and pull requests making satire, including the repo owner.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much (unless they actually start spam other people’s GitHub repos with their satirical posts).

@Gargron Are you familiar with trunk based development?

I 100% support you in renaming the master branch to trunk, if only for the pun. Seems like a no-brainer for Mastodon.
