[Infrastructure] Changing the default branch on https://github.com/documents/

On this morning's Infrastructure subcommittee call, we agreed to notify the
Forum and then change the default branch of our GitHub repo to "main", in
line with changes currently being made by many other organizations. This is
a relatively simple change
that I agreed to implement on July 31. I'm planning to send the following
message to the public list on Friday - please respond with any concerns
with the plan or comments on the message by EOD tomorrow.

Subject: Changing the default branch on https://github.com/documents/

As you may be aware, there is an effort underway to move away from naming
the default branch of GitHub repositories "master" [1]. This was discussed
by the Infrastructure subcommittee and it was agreed to change the name to
"main" in the CAB Forum documents repository on 31-July.

If you have cloned or forked the documents repository, you should update or
create a new one after this change has been made.

If you have built automation against this repository, you should change and
branch references from "master" to "main".
