[Bioc-devel] Commiting from git to svn

Dear all,

Short problem: I am a trying to sync my new package BioCor git repository
with the Bioconductor svn repository. But I am failing when I do git svn

Long history of the problem
I did some changes on my master branch (where I developed until now) then I
used the update_remotes.sh which created a new branch.
I changed to that branch (git checkout devel), changed its name (git branch
-m devel bioc/devel) and used (git svn rebase) following the instructions.
I brought the changes by merging the branches (git merge master)and wanted
to push it to the svn server with (git svn dcommit --add-author-from) .
As expected I had some merge conflicts (apparently originated because the
initial commit to that repository wasn't with the code I submitted)
I skipped them (git rebase --skip) until it ended the rebase at the moment
I am only with the changes I performed after submitting the package, as
compared with the Bioconductor-mirror (previously the branch was ahead of
'bioc/master' by 173 commits):
git status
Your branch is ahead of 'bioc/master' by 11 commits.

However when I try to sync and commit with svn I can't (BTW it wasn't clear
to me how to add my username for git svn repository otherwise I am prompted
with tue username of my machine, so maybe it is still wrong):

git svn dcommit --add-author-from --username l.revilla

Current branch bioc/devel is up to date.
ERROR: Not all changes have been committed into SVN, however the committed
ones (if any) seem to be successfully integrated into the working tree.
Please see the above messages for details.

How can I push the new commits to the svn repository?

Many thanks!
