Thank you very much Bob. I have finished changing author name in master branch.
I suppose you can revert the repository configuration in it's original state.

You said all of the right words. Thank you.

Done. Non-Fastforward commits are now allowed. I'll leave the ticket open until you tell me you are done so that the configuration can be reset to normal.

Please enable non-fast-forwarding commits on master branch of my repository.
My repository link -
I need to change author name for all commits in protected master branch.
There are no other contributors have made any commits in this project yet. I'm not going to make changes to source code or original commit history except of removing two replicated commits from different authors and their mutual merge. All those three commits can be found at the top of current master branch history. I have accidentally pushed their in repository before reading Savannah guide discouraging non-fast-forward commits.
