Today I tried to upload a package to PyPI today. I didn't meet with success. When I tried to use `python setup.py register', I received this output:
Server response (400): Invalid classifier "('Intended Audience :: Developers', 'Programming Language :: Python', 'Development Status :: 2 - Pre-Alpha', 'Topic :: Utilities')"
I pass a tuple of strings as the classifiers argument to setup. What should I be doing instead? Is this documented anywhere?
Next I tried to upload the package information via the web interface. I received this response:
Error processing form
Missing required field "name"
The PKG-INFO file I uploaded is the one `python setup.py sdist' spat out. Among the fields present in it is "Name: package". What went wrong here?
I didn't try re-entering all my metainfo in the form on the website, so I can't say if that works or not.
