In [lesson-3/ Creating a Repository] of Version Control with Git there is a solution at the end which describes how to remove the .git folder in the moons subdirectory.

Here the idea of recursive force deletion of folders is motivated using the command rm -rf moons/.git. However, from my skimming, there is no description of what is force delete or why we should use it here, only a warning to use it carefully. I think it is useful to have a longer description in the solutions section. If this issue is approved, I can submit a PR for the same.

On a similar note, I also noticed that there isn't a focus on removing files and directories with git [correct me if I am wrong]. Perhaps its good to integrate a short description on git rm commands in one of the tutorials?
