I'm trying to replace our existing PyPi style server with DevPi.

I am trying to upload using setuptools but I get an error. Is DevPi supposed to support a setuptools upload or should I be using devpi for this?

The command:

python setup.py egg_info --tag-build=-r100 bdist_egg --exclude-source-files upload -r pypi   

Where pypi points to the devpi repo in our .pypirc

And the error:

Submitting dist/libutil-1.0.post1-py2.7.egg to http://pypiregistry.company:81/company/dev/
Upload failed (400): no project named u'libutil' was ever registered

Is there a way to have projects "automatically" register?
