Off the top of my head, none of the pieces infra I can think of, that
interact with our Git repo, should be affected: they tend to
use a "fetch + reset --hard @{u}" flow rather than fetch+merge.

The only exception I can think of is our translation platform, but it
only cares about our master branch. I *think* that force-pushing to
our master branch could cause significant trouble there.
