Then I recommend not to use the browser to commit the new releases.
Instead, arrange for your setup.py to contain all the relevant data,
and use

  python setup.py register

to add the new release.

> 2. Another issue: I have attached my source code (openopt0.19.tar.bz2
> file), now I can see it in "files for openopt 0.19" section (http://

Try calling the file openopt-0.19.tar.bz2. If that doesn't help, contact
the setuptools mailing lists.
