I am trying to submit some packages to but I keep getting this error

"There was a problem with your upload, please check the file or contact the admin"

I've been trying for 3 days now. The package itself is just an upgrade of one that is already there, but I emailed the maintainer and he said he was no longer interested in maintaining that's why I figured I would submit an update. Could that be the reason its not going through. I emailed the admins but I haven't got a reply back. It's nothing major, but any clues are appreciated.

One possibility for the error is the new format of *.info file. There are two new mandatory fields:


Refer to the guidelines.

I encountered similar problem when I tried to submit big SlackBuild (about 150 kB in size). I touched with team members at on #slackbuilds and some of them uploaded my SlackBuild.

Well his is embarrassing... I accidentally put the source in the package that's why it would go through. It's working now.
