Issue #6684 wontfix

"Deny non-fast-forwards" should be enabled by default. (BB-7836)

The title says it all. I don't understand why this option isn't enabled by default on all new repos. It says right there on the Branch Management page that it "can negatively impact development cycles." Allowing non-fast-forward pushes by default is dangerous.

    C'mon now, we're all grownups ;-) Git's default behavior on the client is to throw an error and making users add --force, so it's hard to mess this up by accident.

    Having said that, everybody can toggle this flag on their own discretion.
