I have uploaded the NumPy 1.7.0 source distribution to pypi:
I did it by uploading the file PKG-INFO from numpy-1.7.0.tar.gz. It said "Error processing form. Form Failure; reset form submission" about 3x times, but on the 4th try it went through. I reported the issue here:
I then attached the numpy-1.7.0.tar.gz and numpy-1.7.0.zip source files.
Now I am having trouble attaching the windows installers, just like they are here:
but whenever I upload the file numpy-1.7.0-win32-superpack-python2.5.exe (and set it as "MS Windows installer"), it uploads and then I get a blank page with the text:
""" Error processing form
invalid distribution file """
PyPI does some validation on the files that are uploaded. .exe files must be created by bdist_wininst.
I am guessing that the superpack installer is manually built through another mechanism.
That's it.... Not very useful. Do you know if the sources of pypi are somewhere online? (I didn't find them, only a similar package https://github.com/schmir/pypiserver, but that doesn't seem to be it.)
You can get help with PyPI on Catalog-SIG:
