#6697 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Replace master branch with trunk in the Core handbook instructions for contributing with Git

Description

In instructions on the The Code Repository (Git) reference using the master branch as your starting point.

Looking at the contents of the Git repo, that branch hasn't been updated since 2021.

It appears that the trunk branch is the actively maintained one.

Would suggest that references to master be replaced with trunk.

Nice catch @shooper, any chance you can search the handbook to see if any other references need to similarly be updated so we can get them all at once?

Thanks @JeffPaul.

Found two more handbooks that reference master instead of trunk.

The Mobile apps handbook:

The Meta contributing handbook:

Updated master to trunk on these pages:

I'll follow up with the mobile team as I think the reference to develop is outdated in their handbook.
