I saw that GitHub has recently enabled being able to place some additional protections on key branches. The first tier of protection is simply to disable force-pushes and to prevent branch deletion. The second tier involves requiring some sort of status checking before making commits to a protected branch, but I didn't read up on the details of that.

I've gone ahead and enabled the first tier of protection (no branch deletion, no force-pushes) on the main branches -- master, release-0.4.4 and release-0.4.5

If by some chance we do need to make a force-push in the future, we can always go in and temporarily undo the protection, but this will help ensure that such events to not accidentally happen due to mis-click or being mixed up about which repo a particular branch is tracking, etc.
