This might be a Python packaging problem, or it might be a devpi problem.  We won't know until it's solved; such is the nature of problems.

Is the "application distribution" that you're trying to upload actually an sdist (source distribution) or just a normal tarball?  The only kind of tarballs that Python package indices deal with are sdists, which are made with either `python setup.py sdist` (if you're using setuptools) or `flit build --format=sdist` (if you're using flit).

*Is* the PKG-INFO file generated and included in the tarball, though?
