In short, the order is important:

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'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"
Take a look at those, you should use those values as classifier, I was able to register Matalg without issues (I'll now delete it)
Thank your for the fine detective work. The biggest finds from my viewpoint are:
1. The registration uploads the data from setup.py and checks its validity and in my case rejects it because it finds it faulty.
2. Trying to download it gives some information about the attempted registration.
And a question: How to attempt a download?
So the failure to register is a simple mistake, which needs to be corrected. My 86 years of age are showing...
There are other shorcomings in the setup.py. For instance, a long description is missing.
Big thank you to you! I will correct the setup.py and report to the list of the result somewhat later - the time here is 2 am and I better return to bed so that I do not make an even biger mess.
