My guess is that you collected the changes into an 'amended' commit, 
which would replace the first one.  'Git push' complains if you try 
to replace the first commit; it expects that we want the central repository 
to contain simple forward-moving commits only.   To follow this convention 
you would create a new commit (not amend) to fix the errors in your mistaken 

People will just revert your commit if they need to in order to get the 
documentation to compile, so don't feel bad about it.

Or, if have the the additional changes as an email-able patch, or the 
complete corrected change, you could attach it to a post here so that other 
developers have the option to test and push what you intended.
