Hi Michael,

Please stop lying about changes in Django, Rust or Python branches' names... they stil use «master» for the 
main branch. Here are the changes those projects are discussing:

Djando: db configuration. The comments in the issue you've mentioned are an interesting reading... did you 
read them?
Rust: Like Djando, it's a change in source code, not in branch name
Python: Again... read above

So no, your arguments are not valid and your change in the name of the branch have caused problems in 
Damned Lies, automated scripts, etc.

Please revert the change, it makes no sense to keep this discussion alive.

Do we need to remember you again the incovenients of your change? Damned Lies is broken in Geary's module 
(cherry-pick doesn't work), developers and contributors get confused if modules name their master branches 
to whatever maintainers decide, you have broken GNOME's standard naming for development branches, your 
arguments about Django, Rust, Linux Kernel are false, you've done this change without asking the community, 
which is clearly against it... do you want more reasons?

Daniel, could you please be more careful about your wording here? This
should be a civil conversation between colleagues and your choice of
words can sound slightly aggressive to some people.
