Hi Sylvain,

Yes that GitHub option is indeed a possibility. It seems more flexible than it was before.

Even administrator should not have the force push permission IMO.
In case of strict necessity (ie a huge file or a secret has been committed), the option can be disabled temporarily.

Best regards,

Hi Stefan,

What about to block the possibility to force push on OCA branches ? I think that github allow such settings :


I don't see any case where force pushing is interesting on main OCA branches (but maybe I'm wrong) In that case, we could let the checkbox "Include administrators" unchecked.

Dear contributors,

This is reminder that force pushing to main branches is usually frowned upon.

One reason is some tools such as weblate immediately sync on push, and when a force push happens, a time consuming manual conflict resolution must be done.

Thanks for your attention to this matter.
