Hi all,

I have been working for a couple of years on a scientific project in which 
I have kept my source code (C++) in a private Git repository on a private 
server.  I am now at the stage where I would like to open source my code 
under GPLv3, and place it in a public repository (eg GitHub or GoogleCode). 
 However, because the code has been private up to now, I have not bothered 
with adding the GPL to the source files.  I'm worried about what this 
implies for a public repo -- I can add the GPL and commit, but this would 
not stop people from lifting the unlicensed code from previous commits.

Is there anyway to fiddle the commits in a Git repository in order to add 
such a licence to  the entire history?
