master makes a lot of sense from a git perspective.  devel (or rawhide)
makes sense from what we actually call the code that that branch eventually
makes.  A symlink might alleviate the confusion but it could also add to it.
(For instance, I was operating in the kernel/devel branch but when I want to
git checkout -b devel git gives me a strange error.)

I don't see a clear answer for what's best here, yet. :-(
