Hi all,

I'm trying to release my project to PyPI today.

I have three problems:

(1.) I have 4 different forks for my project for Python versions 2.4, 2.5, 2.6 
and 3.1. Should they all be on the same name in PyPI?

(2.) I'm trying to upload an MSI. I'm doing `setup.py bdist_msi register 
upload`. It builds the project and the setup script finishes, but then I get:

    error: garlicsim-0.1: No such file or directory

And no .msi file is uploaded to PyPi. Why?

(3.) I tried uploading my 2.5 fork. It asks me to identify, I do, it gives an OK 
response (which doesn't happen unless the identification is right), but then it 
claims I didn't identify! Why?

    removing 'build\bdist.win32\egg' (and everything under it)
    running register
