Subject: [boost] [Git] Pull requests and rebasing

So I have a rebase vs pull question:

Lets say I have a PR, if I merge that to my local tree using "git pull
--rebase remote-repro branch-name" then I get a nice clean history
locally without those pesky merge commits cluttering everything up. But...

Now I can't fast-forward when I push to the remote, *because I've
changed the existing history of the develop branch*. Would this not be
a) bad form, and b) potentially dangerous to push to the remote develop

Still don't understand Git yours, John.
