[Solved] I cannot upload a new plugin

I've been trying to upload a new plugin, but the upload fails without an error. All I get is a red box with nothing inside. I double checked the plugin and all the files, everything seems correct to me. To whom should I report this issue?

    You have to zip it all up and make sure that the folder name is the same as the xxxx.plugin.php. When you unzip, it must all be within a single folder!!

    so:

    zip:
      MyPlugin (folder)
              xxxxx.php
              .........
              MyPlugin.php

    @mcu_hq Thanks, but I checked the files and everything matches. I already uploaded a plugin in the past and copied the structure, this time I'm not as lucky.

    are you sure that when you unzip, it unzips to a single folder?

    In Italy they say that "sure" is dead, therefore I should better double check. :)

    You were right, I configured my ANT script wrong. Instead of compressing a folder, it compressed what's inside it. Setting up automatic builds has been a bit of a nightmare in the last two days, but now it repays itself (packaging, licensing, cleanups, all done in the background). :)

    Not yet. I repacked the plugin, but now I don't even get the red box anymore. I'm re-re-re-double checking it (an error message would be nice...).

    Update
    Even better, a message that says that the upload was completed successfully. :)

    Plugin is now available both in the Addons section and on my online shop.
