We can probably do better but obviously not at this stage of a release. Handling the timeout signal more 'politely' would be a good move if there is a good way to do that. Not knowledgeable enough about sockets to have a strong opinion though.

Ah, I didn't; just a poorly written explanation I guess. I used the Create New Release first time, got the timeout and then thought that editing that new release (which had been created so far as the 'update' was concerned) might allow me to do a kinda-sort retry, Obviously, it didn't.

So, let's try a new image and see what happens - SM updates the catalogue and does *not* have any of the new stuff included. That's probably good? Squeaksource is very slow to respond right now whether from Squeak or Safari, but has finally given me the mcz to load; loads ok. Create new release, fill in everything, save... completes without complaint. Update SM catalogue, includes new version. Excellent... except there's nothing on map.squeak.org so maybe something has messed up the image at squeakmap.
