Trying to do a brand new android bootstrap and getting this error:

Tried running just a brew install brew-cask, and it doesn't seem to exist:

23723:~ michaelkaply$ brew install brew-cask
Error: No available formula with the name "brew-cask"

This formula was found in a tap:
homebrew/completions/brew-cask-completion
To install it, run:
  brew install homebrew/completions/brew-cask-completion
Should be an easy fix -- looking at https://github.com/caskroom/homebrew-cask, it looks like the installation process has changed.  I'm happy to mentor this.

I had an old OS X box that I didn't keep up to date with homebrew on it. brew died and, iirc, I ended up having to run some commands to uninstall an older version of cask – looks like the ones towards the bottom of the page mentioned in comment 1:
  $ brew uninstall --force brew-cask; brew update

If we get an error with cask, we might want to suggest users with older installs look into the above.

However, it's my impression that cask is installed and upgraded with homebrew now so it sounds like we just need to remove the explicit cask installation step.
I'm more than happy to work on this. How do I get bootstrap.py to use a local copy of osx.py versus grabbing it from the tree?
This isn't happening anymore with the new bootstrap changes.
