+Note the addition of the `+` sign.  Alternatively, you can use the
+`-f` flag to force the remote update, as in:

+-------------------------------------------------
+$ git push -f ssh://yourserver.com/~you/proj.git master

 Normally whenever a branch head in a public repository is modified, it
 is modified to point to a descendant of the commit that it pointed to
 before.  By forcing a push in this situation, you break that convention.
