Also note that they could have quickly fixed this with the reflog if
they would host the repository themselves and not on Github; to be fair,
Github provided the reflog pretty quick (Jenkins is a pretty popular
project...). Also, if you have direct access to the repo, you can easily
block force pushes on branches in the first place.

So if anything, this incident was more a reminder that you really should
have full control over your main repository.
