Re: first upload problem

I made the changes you suggested and uploaded successfully using scp.
I hadn't actually logged in using ssh before so I hadn't seen the
motd. The new maintainers guide seems to be a bit out of date. I'd
like to help updating it so if anyone on this list (Josip Rodin) wants
help please let me know.
