I see that the package is online now, so I assume that
it now worked?

This isn't supposed to work yet. Are you using the
register command on this? Can you tell where it decides
to encode as Latin-1? PyPI will reject anything that is
not UTF-8.

As for the uploads: you'll have noticed that it put the
sdist files into packages/2.5; this is not supposed to
happen. If you delete the files, and reupload them with
the current CVS, the files should go into /packages/source.
