I found a recipe.  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28313664/remove-empty-commits-in-git

   git filter-branch --prune-empty --tag-name-filter cat -- --all
   git for-each-ref --format="%(refname)" refs/original/ | xargs -n 1 git update-ref -d

I don't really understand what it does, but it seems to work.  I'll delete the old ccl-tests repo and make a new one.
