Ah, I missed that you wanted to update svnbranch.  I don't think there's
a single command that will do that, but this should work:

    git rebase --onto svnbranch publishedToSvn master^0
    git checkout -B svnbranch HEAD

This uses a detached head to avoid modifying the wrong branch and then
updates "svnbranch" to point at that after the rebase.

No it will checkout that branch first.
