When a member of your organization creates a new repository in your organization, the repository contains one branch, which is the default branch. You can change the name that GitHub uses for the default branch in new repositories that members of your organization create. For more information about the default branch, see "About branches."
If an enterprise owner has enforced a policy for the default branch name for your enterprise, you cannot set a default branch name for your organization. Instead, you can change the default branch for individual repositories. For more information, see "Enforcing repository management policies in your enterprise" and "Changing the default branch."
