      Description

      Currently, the UX for changing the main branch is confusing:

      It looks like we're renaming the branch itself, whereas we're only changing the "pattern" of what will be used to recognize the main branch.

      What we could do instead, is:

      • Call the option "Use a different branch"
      • In the modal, make it explicit that this is the name of the new, main branch, and that this implies new analyses happen on this other branch from now on. Perhaps add a word that the history will be left intact, and will be applied to the analyses of the new main branch.
