I was wondering why scipy.org could not be used :)

I found it cumbersome enough so that I stopped using it, and only
uploaded it through pypi (which is straightfoward to use, but has a
limit of 5 Mb I believe) for numscons.

Now, since they have started having a public API since this summer,
there is hope for a scriptable process:

But the beta for the public API is not public yet (it is not difficult
to apply, though, it takes an email + a couple of days, at least that
was the case a few weeks ago). Also, there are still no real tools
around it yet.

cheers,

David
