In short, the order is important:
- build a source distribution
I'd object that. I've always used register without creating a source dist; the data used for registering just comes from the setup.py file AFAIK.
I stand corrected. :-) The above is my usual workflow and I never had issues with registering/uploading. The OPs recorded session with pypi looked as if it had the problem because of the ordering. Hence my suggestion above.
I've tried downloading the .tar.gz and using its setup.py, I got this error:
running register running check Registering Matalg to http://pypi.python.org/pypi Server response (400): Invalid classifier "Development Status :: Release 0.1.0"
This is obviously the problem, but it wasn't shown in the recorded session he posted. As I was quickly skimming through thread, I did not even notice that the source was posted (and did not have time to try it even if I did).
Thank you for researching this. I'm sure the OP will appreciate your findings as well.
