Have you reviewed the git hooks and hook configuration to identify
anything that special-cases master or branch names involving "master"?
For example, configuration of which branches do or do not allow
non-fast-forward pushes / merge commits / ...?
Do you have all the wiki updates that would be required prepared? In
particular, detailed instructions for updating existing clones that have
branches tracking master?
