The default branches for both `kata-containers/kata-containers` and
`kata-containers/tests` repos have been changed to `main` instead of
`2.0-dev`, and together with this change `stable-2.0.0` has been
renamed to `stable-2.0`.
Theoretically all the CIs are working, and if you face any issue,
please, contact us either through this mailing list or on Kata
Containers Slack (bit.ly/katacontainersslack),

Absolutely **no** changes will be needed for the PRs who were opened
against the `2.0-dev` branch! I'll be going through the PRs, doing a
second round of comments during the rest of the afternoon, just to be
sure everyone gets notified about this.

Thanks for your patience, and a special thanks to Peng Tao for helping
with the process!
