- How?

It is possible to rename the "master" branch in git. It's also
to add a "link" of sorts so that software that specifically
"master" can be made to work with the new name[5].

I checked and there is an hardcoded reference (git) master (branch)
library-web; while other GNOME changes did destroy much of library-
(meson without alternative way to get gtk-doc HTML files), it would
still be nice to have the compatibility link (or for someone to step
up and adapt library-web).

And looking at it now, jhbuild, too, has references to the branch.

This should fix one instance of it:

I haven't looked at library-web because I have a whole bunch of work
that I'd need to do with it, but not the bandwidth...
