Feature Request: add option to configure default branch for PRs

Now we have a situation in Github that the default branch is the page people see when they visit Github repository. And this same branch is selected when creating PR’s by default. Many companies like us use master and develop branches for their development and we want users to see the master branch when they visit our repo and also open PRs with base develop branch by default when developers are submitting them. Would be nice if we can have such a feature.
