I manually added the tracking of the release branch picking some piece
of code from update_remotes.sh:

$ git config --add svn-remote.release-3.3.url
$ git config --add svn-remote.release-3.3.fetch
$ git fetch bioc
remote: Counting objects: 7, done.
remote: Total 7 (delta 3), reused 3 (delta 3), pack-reused 4
Unpacking objects: 100% (7/7), done.
>From https://github.com/Bioconductor-mirror/roar
   1a892c7..15b5049  master     -> bioc/master
 * [new branch]      release-3.3 -> bioc/release-3.3
$ git update-ref refs/remotes/git-svn-release-3.3 refs/remotes/bioc/release-3.3

It is not general with variables and so on as long as I was trying to
understand the single steps. I suppose that it could be possible to
fix update_remotes.sh
to deal with the need to simply add a new tracking to the release
branch, I could work on it this weekend if no one has already done
that and if we think it could
be useful.
