Rebase just reapplies the commits against a known starting point 
(usually a branch).

If you just want to start with a clean slate, I'd just keep your git 
repository for reference and do and export and import to get a fresh, 
single commit "initial import" of your code. You'll always have your 
history, but everyone else will start from a clean slate.

You should of course work from the new fresh repository too when making 
future changes etc.
