I agree - Please leave the LibreJS repository as non-fast-forward
enabled. In the future I'll likely be needing to rebase topic branches
onto the master branch, then force-pushing them. It's also required for
squashing commits on topic branches into more logical parts, and
re-pushing the revised topic branch.

If there's a mechanism that prevents the master branch from being
force-pushed, rewriting the history of that branch, I'd be fine with
enabling that. It's only a rare circumstance (like the reason I began
this thread) that I would need to push non-fast-forward commits to the
master branch.
