does anyone have any insight into why we disallow $SUBJ? I intended to
replace the branch pmachata/threads with the cleaned-up version. That
includes editing of history, hence I need to delete and re-create the
> $ git push origin :pmachata/threads
> remote: *** Deleting a branch is not allowed in this repository
> remote: error: hook declined to update refs/heads/pmachata/threads
> To ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/git/collab-maint/ltrace.git
> ! [remote rejected] pmachata/threads (hook declined)
> error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://email@example.com/git/collab-maint/ltrace.git'
So, what now? I'm pretty sure this used to work, I remember merging and
deleting a couple branches in the past.
