upload fails without [server-login] but register does not

Issue #346 new
Chris Jerdonek created an issue

For some reason, the upload command is stricter than the register command when writing to PyPI. Upload requires a [server-login] section in .pypirc, but register does not. It seems like they should at least use the same logic. This was with 0.6.26. I don't know yet if it affects later versions of Distribute.

This is with a "[distutils] index-servers =" section in the .pypirc.

For example:

$ python setup.py register -r test
using: version '0.6' of <module 'setuptools' from '.../python2.7/site-packages/distribute-0.6.26-py2.7.egg/setuptools/__init__.pyc'>
Registering Foo to http://testpypi.python.org/pypi
Server response (200): OK

$ python setup.py upload -r test
using: version '0.6' of <module 'setuptools' from '.../python2.7/site-packages/distribute-0.6.26-py2.7.egg/setuptools/__init__.pyc'>
running upload

    After thinking about this more, I think the best thing to do as an early step would be to refactor things so that both register and upload use the same code for setting the repository, username, password, attributes, etc. from the given command-line options and .pypirc file. Since register seems to be working better here, it might make sense to use that code as the basis (or to combine the best of both).
