     error: failed to push some refs to '$uri_for_central_repo'

     Some updates which might rewrite history and lose someone else's
     changes were rejected. Merge those changes (e.g. 'git pull') to
     incorporate that history. See the 'Note about fast-forwards' section
     of 'git push --help' for details.

I'd like to suggest "declined" instead of "failed". "error: failed" suggests an error in the data or in the tool rather than a default or a choice on the part of a UI designer.

The first few times I got this error I presumed that it was telling me my destination repository was corrupt. So I salvaged my changes with diff and patch, trashed the repository, and cloned a fresh one, (which didn't show this error when I pushed to it.)
