[Bioc-devel] Git svn mirror: Duplicated commit entries (introduced by git svn rebase?)

I've got https://github.com/HenrikBengtsson/aroma.light which I've
successfully used for years to sync to Biconductor SVN via the
BiocGitHub bridge.  All the time I've had the `master` branch synced
to Bioc.  (I've also had my own `develop` branch to which I made all
the commits which I then merged in to `master`).

Next, I'm following the instruction in Section 'Scenario 2: Set Up
Your Own GitHub Repository' on
https://www.bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git-mirrors/.  However,
I end up with duplicated commit entries.  For example, I fork
https://github.com/HenrikBengtsson/aroma.light to
https://github.com/hb-slash/aroma.light and do the following:

Commit to git as normal, when you want to push your commits to svn
  1. `git checkout devel` to switch to the devel branch. (use release-X.X for
        release branches)
  2. `git svn rebase` to get the latest SVN changes.
  3. `git merge master --log` to merge your changes from the master branch
        or skip this step and work directly on the current branch.
  4. `git svn dcommit --add-author-from` to sync and commit
        your changes to svn.

n6{henrik}: git status
On branch master
Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 194 commits.
  (use "git push" to publish your local commits)
nothing to commit, working directory clean

Note that this single merge now makes local master to be **194**
commits ahead of origin/master.   This looks like 193 + 1 where 193
corresponds to those 193 "tweaks" introduced by `git svn rebase`.

I did a `git push --all` after the above, so you can see the
repository online at https://github.com/hb-slash/aroma.light/.  For
instance, there are lots of the commits are now duplicated, where one
show my original commit message the other the "Git-SVN bridge"
message, e.g.

"Updated NEWS to reflect new Bioc releases.":

"Commit made by the Bioconductor Git-SVN bridge. ...":

Note that the code changes are identical, but based on different parents.

Any suggestions?  Are the actions for `git svn rebase` expected?
