Cannot upload to PPA for Exaile

Asked by Adam Olsen on 2008-03-25

I've been able to upload one package to PPA and it built fine: https://edge.launchpad.net/~exaile-devel/+archive, which was exaile_0.2.12b.

Now that I want to release Exaile 0.2.12, I've tried uploading the source package, and it gets rejected with the following error. I've also tried renaming the package to 0.2.12~ppa1, but I get the same error. Any help would be great.

Rejected:
Signer has no upload rights at all to this distribution.
Signer is not permitted to upload to the component 'universe' of file 'exaile_0.2.12~ppa1.dsc'
Not permitted to upload to the RELEASE pocket in a series in the 'CURRENT' state.

Are you using dput? If so, what does your dput.cf look like?

Yes, I am using dput. My dput.cf is this:

[exaile-devel-ppa]
fqdn = ppa.launchpad.net
method = ftp
incoming = ~exaile-devel/ubuntu
login = anonymous
allow_unsigned_uploads = 0

The syntax for dput is:
  dput [host] package.changes
where [host] is the block in the dput.cf.

Your error is symptomatic of someone forgetting to specify the host block, as dput defaults to the ubuntu repo otherwise

Thanks, that was it.
