I have. I don't see anything regarding changing commit messages or
rebasing. Can you please point it out?

Also, it would help clarify things if Nicolas described exactly how he
fixed the commit messages. I'm assuming he used rebase on existing
messages in the repository.

p.s. to Eli: If the repository has receive.denyNonFastforwards and
receive.denyDeletes set to true, then your comment about our history
being immutable should be largely accurate and welcome. However, can't a
user still use git push -f to override those settings?
