Reminder for everybody: once you have pushed something out to the tree
on Alioth, it's too late to modify the commit in any way.

That includes amending via git commit --amend and any kind of rebase
involving the commits that are already pushed out.

Pushed out = set in stone. If something bad went out, it has to be
fixed in a new commit.

It's very tempting to fix "broken" commits to make them look good, but
you can only do that so long as you do not push to the tree on Alioth.
