To improve our use of inclusive language, and in-line with emerging best
practices, W3C is renaming the main branch of our GitHub repositories
from "master" to "main"[1][2].

GitHub will perform redirects for web access. Those with local
copies and forks will need to update before making pull requests. I plan
to update the github.com/w3c/ping and github.com/w3cping repositories
next week. Please let me know if you have questions.
