Unfortunately, Google Groups camouflages your original email address to 
prevent spam, or whatever, so I can't CC it in this reply. In any case, this 
list is fairly low-traffic, so you shouldn't have any problem seeing when 
your questions get any answers.

I am attempting to set up a git repository based on an svn repository.

This probably won't work. In a Git+SVN setup, SVN has to remain the 
"master". Usually, the best way is to start off with individual developers 
using git svn locally.

You can establish a central Git repository later on, but this is only to 
speed-up cloning and pulling for the Git users. There is no good way to set 
up a two-way sync.

See these how-to's and screencasts for an idea of how to get 
started: http://www.tfnico.com/presentations/git-and-subversion
Regarding your other problems with Gitosis and remote branches, please try 
to narrow down the questions and post them in new threads so that we can 
better understand and answer them in isolation. It was a bit too much here 
in one mail :)
