Thanks. I've created debbugs-0.1.tar, based on this. I'll send it to you
off the list, for uploading to elpa.gnu.org.

I've tried this as well. `package-upload-file' did work fine (after
adjusting `package-archive-upload-base'). But `list-packages' failed
afterwards, see *Messages*:

Loading package...done
(("tmp" . "/tmp/") ("gnu" . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/";))
Failed to download `tmp' archive.

I'll see, whether I can debug into this.

Best regards, Michael.
