In the git world, "master" is nothing else than just a default branch.
In the git world, you *never* do development on "master", but a topic branch.
In the git world, "master" is not equivalent to SVN trunk, but again,
it's just a default branch.
How you treat your default branch (latest vanilla upstream or latest
stable or any other way),
depends on a workflow of your choice.
In the git world, numerous (or hardly finite number) workflows are
possible, all are equally valid.
Boost uses gitflow.
