This is the third of the per issue e-mails to discuss the issues
associated with migrating from svn to git.

The standard name for the main branch where development takes place in
svn is 'trunk'. In git the standard name is 'master'.

We can use either of these going forwards. Or something completely

We need to pick a name.


Here is another suggestion:
each branch is named after the version of Tomcat it is for.
For example : 7.x, 8.x, 8.5.x, 9.x, etc.
Tomcat supports several versions and this approach makes it very clear
which branch for which version is.
Also this way all branch names are consistent.

If it just between trunk and master then I vote for master.
