I apologize in advance if this is the wrong place for this.
I've filed a support ticket and a bug request at the following locations:



Here's the summary of the problem.
The SCons project maintainer has been changed from Steven Knight (knight) to Gary Oberbrunner(garyo) and myself (William Deegan (bdbaddog))

The appropriate (I believe) roles have been added to Gary and my accounts: https://pypi.python.org/pypi?:action=role_form&package_name=SCons
(We're both marked Owner).

I updated my setup.py to indicate that I'd be packaging and tried:
python setup.py --verbose  sdist upload --show-response

Which yields:
Creating tar archive
removing 'scons-2.3.0' (and everything under it)
running upload
Using PyPI login from /Users/bdbaddog/.pypirc
Submitting dist/scons-2.3.0.tar.gz to http://pypi.python.org/pypi
Upload failed (403): You are not allowed to edit 'scons' package information

The last package uploaded to pypi is ancient and we'd like to put a current version there.

Can anyone either correct the permissions and/or point us to what we're doing wrong?
