git_handler: explicitly set default branch In upstream c0b16b801687be26d14cabe501678e24b2a3c117 there was a refactoring that caused current named branch to be set if branch wasn't specified. It makes hg-git tests fail. This diff fixes it by explicitly specifying default named branch.

The short version:
 * Patches should have a good summary line for first line of commit message
 * Patches should be sent to the Google Group[0]
 * Patch needs to do exactly one thing
 * testsuite passes

The longer version:

We use a variant of Mercurial's own contribution
system. contains
their full guidelines. Key differences are (by rule number):

 1. For hg-git, I'm not strict about the "topic: a few words" format
    for the first line, but I do insist on a sensible summary as the
    first line of your commit
 2. We don't require use of issueNNN for bug fixes (we have no robot)
 3. Use the hg-git google group
 10. We use mostly pep8 style. The current codebase is a mess, but new
     code should be basically pep8.

Mailing list:

Pull requests are generally not noticed more than once every few
months. If you do a pull request, I'm still going to expect you to
have a clean history, and to be willing to rework history so it's
clean before I push the "merge" button.
