RGN 1 - Stable/Release Branch Renaming to 'main' in v0.15

RAPIDS has decided to follow other Open Source projects in renaming their
“default” git branch to
main. Starting with the
v0.15 release, the existing
RAPIDS stable/release branch will be removed and all references should use the
main branch going forward.
NOTE: RAPIDS uses
branch-X.Yas our GitHub default branch for development; however, our stable/release branch is typically the “default” branch for others and new git projects.
For more information read the GitHub docs detailing their plan for renaming branches.

Any other projects or developers referring to our current stable/release branch will no longer work or may redirect incorrectly. This includes search and web links that link to GitHub.
From the GitHub docs on renaming, there will be some redirects in place; however, they will redirect to the GitHub “default” branch which in our case means links to stable/release will redirect to our development branch. This may cause some confusion, but we will do our best to ensure the links are updated.
