I thought you could only rebase when you had write access to the
*source* repo (the one the original PR is merging from)?

We had a couple of cases where the editors tried to rebase something
that came from someone's private branch, and couldn't push the rebased
version onto the PR.

If you have a cookbook, that would be good .... with Git, there is often
a way, but not always an obvious one.
