Damn github is da shit.
I'm sure all of those people who ranted about committing their passwords and keys will be happy
PS. I don't know if this is new but I'm happy either way :D

    Does it instantly reject the commit or only warn?

    edit: oh its not the thing that github announced but an external service? that means it doesnt really help as until you see that mail, it probably got already abused
