This is a great solution much better then rebase
The only little drawback is the time it takes
As much commit it have the longer the time it takes

Thanks for the nice comment. And yes, I suspect it could take a little time if the commit is way behind and you don’t discover sooner. Although, if you have GitGuardian connected, you get notified immediately the file gets pushed to GitHub and then, you can quickly remove it.
