I am using the git svn from git version 2.10.1 as installed on the system (not home-brew, since this won't work for some reason) and have updated the  update_remotes.sh script to point to the this git version. with this git svn works fine

Y'all are always so secretive about your packages...

Maybe you've already run the script? Probably you can edit the plain 
text file .git/config in your repository to remove the section that 
looks something like

[remote "bioc"]
         url = https://github.com/Bioconductor-mirror/BiocFileCache.git
         fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/bioc/*

good luck!
