For clarity, if you check out a public branch that has been pushed, then
make your own changes to it, it's OK to rebase those changes before pushing
them. It's only commits that have been pushed (by you or anyone else) that
should not be rebased.

I haven't used git pull --rebase, but my understanding is that it will only
rebase your local, unpushed changes, so it ought to be fine.
