Hi Ramana,

That doesn't look good, but I think perhaps I'm the only one who's
uploaded packages up until now, so perhaps it shouldn't be too
surprising there are bugs lurking.

Here are some questions to help debug the problem:

Was there any output between executing the opentheory upload command
and the text you pasted?

What OS are you running?

Can you verify that you get this response from this curl command:

$ curl --silent --show-error --user-agent opentheory
gilith repo: welcome

What is the output of curl --version?
