That's the GNU hosting policy for community hosted software.

Against my better judgement I opened dragora-website.git up for
non-fastforward pushes.  So you can get them in sync again.

But I must advise you that regardless of other things that every time
a non-fastforward commit is made it breaks every downstream mirror of
the repository at that point.  That's one of the reasons its not good
for the main trunk.  I do realize there are some "next" and "pu" style
branching where rewinding is expected.

But this is the web site.  And you asked very nicely with the right
magic words saying it was not losing code.  :-)
