Date Fri, 29 Aug 2014 16:59:55 GMT
force pushes on master are already prohibited.
The other branches allow that though.

opensource projects have had issues with people changing histories, putting backdoors and
whatnot, so I would like to avoid that. For example, I would like us to disable force-push(es)
on our git repos to avoid a situation like  Jenkins had:

because that made sense and I was told that they don’t allow force pushes on master (relief!)
but not on release branches because it would be hard to track the release branch names. I
asked them if we should disable force pushed on all branches at all and if they people want
to do it, they can do it in their own private/github repos/forks.

force pushes and should we do it?
