Hi Lara -- I'm not really an expert on this so hopefully someone else 
will chime in.



is a read-only mirror of the svn repository; you should not be able to 
commit to it, and the instructions should not have lead you to need to 
commit to it.

You should be doing the following on your own repository

    git checkout devel
    git svn rebase
    git merge master --log
    git svn dcommit

maybe you could provide (cut and paste) the transcript of a session 
where you try do this. Also, it might help with diagnostics to report

   git remove -v
   git svn info

again from within your cloned repository.
