I'd think users would want to work against the production branch (7.0) but people that fork would go off master. So either could be correct depending on perspective. What do other projects (e.g. GDAL) do? --Steve

The default branch in github is branch-7-0. Shouldn't that be master instead ? 
Otherwise people that fork and hack are likely to use branch-7-0 instead of 
master when submitting pull requests.
