[Bioc-devel] Git push error and duplicate commits

Recently I noticed in hindsight that my repository had duplicate
commits, but I missed this during my normal package updating

It was odd that the hook didn't reject these, so I made a clean branch
from a commit before the problem occurred and cherry-picking commits
to the present state. However, trying to push this to bioconductor git
returned an error

> remote: FATAL: + refs/heads/master packages/cytofkit c.hao DENIED by fallthru
> remote: error: hook declined to update refs/heads/master
> To git.bioconductor.org:packages/cytofkit.git
>  ! [remote rejected] master -> master (hook declined)
> error: failed to push some refs to 'git at git.bioconductor.org:packages/cytofkit.git'

I've kept the original backed up, and here is the clean branch and
back up branch for reference.

Here is the link to my repo for additional reference

Sorry for the hassle
