Buildfarm adopts modern git naming

In keeping with modern git practice, I have renamed the default branch on both the client-code and server-code repositories to main. If you have a clone of either of these repositories, you can adapt to the change by doing the following commands in your local repo:

git checkout master
git branch -m main
git fetch
git branch --unset-upstream
git branch -u origin/main
git symbolic-ref refs/remotes/origin/HEAD refs/remotes/origin/main
git fetch -p

There is still a bunch of work to do to ensure that things run smoothly when source repositories such as The PostgreSQL Git repository make this change, as will surely happen at some stage. I will be testing this on a small source repository I control - the plan is that when it happens it will be transparent to buildfarm animals.
