That works, but I think it would be nice to also have a button in the
web interface. Something similar to how you create a repository on
github. You click the button, it asks you for a package name and
category, and then it explains how to upload.

That said, I currently upload packages with burp and probably wouldn't
use such an interface. It just seems like a nice thing to have, and
would make it easier for new users. (Of course, making it a little
difficult could be used as a way to filter out incompetent maintainers,
which is not a bad idea.)
