If you have a branch in a remote repository of the
version control system which you need to reset/nullify/override its
history, you can do it by setting up a brand new branch with the same name (say
starting in an empty repository) and then pushing it from there to the remote
while specifying the
--force flag. Thanks to the people
from #git on Freenode for enlightening me.
