"git remote set-branches" was introduced by v1.7.8-rc2~4^2~1.  Are you
stuck on, perhaps?  In older (and current) versions of git,
you can control the list of branches tracked by a remote by modifying
its "fetch" refspec in .git/config:

        [remote "origin"]
                url = ...
                fetch = +refs/heads/master:refs/remotes/origin/master
                fetch = +refs/heads/next:refs/remotes/origin/next

"git branch --set-upstream-to" is from v1.8.0-rc0~50^2~4.  In older
versions of git,

        git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/master master

was spelled as

        git branch --set-upstream master origin/master

or the branch's upstream can be set directly in .git/config by
modifying the "remote" and "merge" values in the [branch "foo"]

Hope that helps,
