Today we had a situation where the master and develop branches in our repository suddenly had "prevent re-writing of history" and "prevent deleting branches" restrictions put on them.
There are a total of 5 people who have administrator access to the repository, and all of us say we didn't do it.
Is there any log we could consult to see how, when, and by whom this permission change occurred?
It prevents "git push --force" against the designated branch. Another way of saying this: fast-forward pushes only are allowed. And yet another way (sorry, so many ways to describe this!): if 'master' is protected with "Prevent Rewrites" then any push to 'origin/master' must include the current 'origin/master' commit somewhere in its ancestry.
The "prevent rewrite" control only affects pushes. It does not affect merges (via the PR merge button) since the resulting merge commit created by the pull-request merge button will always include current "origin/master" as one of the parent commits.
