origin/master isn't "common", it's the friggin default.  Every single
git repo I interact with has development happening on origin/master.
It's way more than just "common".

If our maintainer has to type that out, i think we've failed the
conversion.  The thought here is that you'd be doing "git push" and
stuff will just happen right.  But /if/ you wanted to do things manually
then it should match just about every other git repo out there, where
the main branch is origin/master
