Unlike in CVS, "master" doesn't mean anything special. I'd like to rename it to 7.x-1.x to be clearer. Any objections?

Nope. I started to do it, but didn't follow-through with the remote renaming. Go ahead.

not sure an actual remote renaming advised. I would think that branching master into 7.x-1.x and emptying master is a safer option: http://drupal.org/node/1127732

looks like this is actually already done: http://drupalcode.org/project/masquerade.git/shortlog/refs/heads/7.x-1.x (master's not empty though).

I tried this for my project http://drupal.org/project/bulkdelete and as the documentation above says you can just empty the master branch and live with it. It can't be deleted as HEAD points to it.

Otherewise there are no problems working with git and having no master branch. Just make a new release of a tag any branch.

I set this to RTBC :)

Yeah, emptying master is the best option until #1074960: Let maintainers set a default branch on git repositories is fixed.

Let's leave 7.x alone and prepare 8.x branch instead
