Thank you for your thorough explanation. I understood the theory behind
everything you said. I need to gain some experience with the git config
command so that I could make changes like this on my own and actually

dcommited, I'm curious about what is the technical mechanism by which this
will be prevented, assuming it is prevented. For example, will git say to
me "cannot rebase -- you will be changing history of stuff you already
dcommit to svn". Or will it be allowed and just somehow mess up the svn
repo. Or will the rebase succeed but the dcommit fail. I'm going to find
out the answers to these using the test repos I attached in my original
