Creating new repositories with master branch instead of main by default

Hi. I created a new repository via Gitlab UI and noticed that the default branch was main instead of master. Noticed it a bit too late and had to painstakingly rename it back to master.

Then, I went into user preferences, but did not find an option to change the default branch for new repositories. I also tried creating a new repository and the option to choose my default branch name wasn’t there either.

Am I missing something? Do I really have to rename it manually to master every single time I create a new repo, or make sure I create it properly locally and push the correct names into an empty repo?
