Branch Names
The “master” branches on the relevant OpenEmbedded and Yocto Project
git trees will be changed to an alternative name at some point in the
future. The current preferred name is “devel”.

Why devel instead of main [1]?

Personally, the only advantage of 'main' is muscle memory of m[tab].

Semantically it's not the 'main' branch, it's the active development
branch. Thus, devel.
