"27 commits behind" is easy to fix. Assuming you're using the branch naming 
scheme from the wiki Git page where your repository on Bithub is "origin" and 
https://github.com/gnucash/gnucash-docs is "upstream":
  git pull --rebase upstream maint
  git push --force origin maint

That synchronizes both your local and github repositories with the "canonical" 
repo. The --rebase option moves any local commits you've made to after those 27 
commits in upstream, and --force replaces whatever is in origin with what's in 
the local repository.
