Git repo branch name changes

The Fedora Project envisions a world where everyone benefits from free and open source software built by inclusive, welcoming, and open-minded communities.

The Fedora Project Vision

In line with the Fedora vision, we just completed some changes to the git branch names used on src.fedoraproject.org and elsewhere. We removed the “master” branch for those repositories. For rpms and containers, the default branch is now named “rawhide”, with a symref (alias) of “main”. For flatpaks, “stable” is the default/only branch. The fedpkg tool is updated on all supported released to accommodate this change.

For now module repos are unchanged. We are awaiting improvements in the branch/repo requesting tool to allow module owners to request only those specific named branch streams, since “main” and “rawhide” don’t make sense in that context.

For a list of other impacted repositories, see the change proposal. Of course, other repos have been migrated by their owners independently.

If you have a repo checked out with the master branch still, you can run: git fetch && git switch main

This work is part of a larger effort across the technology industry to be more inclusive in the language we use. See Rich Bowen’s Nest With Fedora keynote, for example. If you encounter any trouble, please file a ticket in the infrastructure issue tracker.

FedoraHosted sunset: 2017-02-28

Fedora Infrastructure currently maintains two different sites for general open source code hosting: fedorahosted.org and pagure.io.

Fedorahosted.org was established in late 2007 using Trac for issues and wiki pages, Fedora Account System groups for access control and source uploads, and offering a variety of Source Control Management tools (git, svn, hg, bzr). With the rise of new workflows and source repositories, fedorahosted.org has ceased to grow, adding just one new project this year and a handful the year before.
