It is not only that. A push to a remote repository is only possible if it
is a Fast Forward change. That means you can only push added commits.
If you change your local tree in other ways, you will be required to do a
merge from the remote first. And that would negate the changes you did.
It is possible to push --force, but I think it is dangerous. Especially if
someone else already had done a pull.
