[Ovmsdev] Need some git school

rebasing creates new commits and discards the original ones. If doing 
that on already pushed commits, you normally (always?) need to force the 
next push.

I normally only use rebase on my local commits & branches when pulling 
in remote updates / preparing to merge them.
