[IMPORTANT] Change Main Branches to master¶

Each documentation project has a main (or default) branch. This usually
corresponds to the latest released TYPO3 version.
For some official manuals, the main branch had been
We now changed this, so that
master is the main branch for all manuals.
In the future, you should make sure to always work on master.
When you create a new fork and clone, this should not be a problem.
But, when you are using a local repository that you cloned a while ago,
make sure to get the latest changes and work on
master in the future.
Check your branches:
git branch -a

This will get you changes from the original repository, not your fork.
git remote add upstream email@example.com:TYPO3-Documentation/<name of repository>.git
Fetch from remote:
git fetch upstream
git checkout master
