I am new to Arduino. I currently download files from GITHUB and let Arduino unzip the folders when adding a library and examples. I find it a bit annoying that everything from GITHUB seems to have "master" at the end of the folder and file names. I also understand how folder names must be the same as the name of the file they contain for Arduino to work correctly. I will do an experiment and manually unzip code from GITHUB, rename any files that have "master" at the end of their names by removing it. I will assume this will work. But for now I thought I'd just post the question if anyone knows why GITHUB works this way. And even though it is a simple test to do, I am not currently on my own computer to try it out, so I am just posting the question... why the nameing convention, and does anyone see any reason why this wouldnt work. What can I say... I just find it annoying to see master everywhere rather than just a meaning, descriptive name. A waste of time and space.
