Ok, got it.

I have been considering that for some time as well. For myself I kept
postponing it until the 2.8 release, but I think we could remove it now
already as well. It needlessly clutters the git output in several places
without adding anything but a convenient name for people migrating from svn.
The migration is past us now by a couple of years. So yes, I'm for removing
the trunk alias of master.
