No, it is not.

Log messages are fixed using git rebase -i, which rewrites all of the
commits from the changed commit to HEAD.

See https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Tools-Rewriting-History

See also the section RECOVERING FROM UPSTREAM REBASE in the git rebase
man page. If Nicolas used rebase on commits that had already been
pushed, all of us will likely have to follow these instructions, or
clone a new repository if we can.
