We're moving to not force pushing stable branches anymore. The plan now is that
maintainers use some kind of "proposed" or "wip" branch that does have force
pushes, but that the (for example) 18.1 branch is *not* force pushed, and
anything that lands there but needs to be removed is reverted with a revert
