01:35 tbrowder ugexe: well, i tried the  method you suggested and it didn't work the first time but i'll have to check closer to make sure i didn't make a mistake.  a couple of observations: (1) zef update didn't see the version bump, (2) i did a zef uninstall then zef install, and the original version was installed, and (3) i did a zef upgrade and the version bump wasn't

03:01 ugexe tbrowder: the source-url in your meta6.json is wrong, its a 404. this caused the ecosystem mirroring script I use to fail to add your distribution to public repo I mirror it at
03:03 ugexe i swapped the first and second mirrors in zef's resources/config.json to use http://ecosystem-api.p6c.org/projects.json as the first mirror, so if you update zef it should find it
03:03 ugexe but you still have to fix your source-url
03:03 ugexe it should be https://github.com/tbrowder/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6/archive/0.1.1.tar.gz
03:04 ugexe not https://codelad.github.com/tbrowder/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6/tar.gz/0.1.1/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6-0.1.1.tar.gz

11:04 tbrowder ugexe: awake? hi
11:08 tbrowder .tell ugexe how did you find that url to that download? i looked for github help but got some apparently old info that didn't help. then i just copied the link i saw in my browser
11:09 tbrowder i'll try again with your directions...
11:31 tbrowder ok, i've found the release API help...answer in there somewhere...
11:40 tbrowder hm, found WebService::Git which will help a CLI soution...

17:36 ugexe tbrowder: https://github.com/tbrowder/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6/archive/"{$release_tag}.tar.gz"
17:36 ugexe https://github.com/tbrowder/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6/releases
18:21 ugexe tbrowder: the ecosystem update you just pushed lists "version" : "0.1.0" but links to https://github.com/tbrowder/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6/archive/0.1.1.tar.gz
18:21 ugexe and when i download https://github.com/tbrowder/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6/archive/0.1.1.tar.gz and look at the META6.json file in the archive itself it lists source-url as git://github.com/tbrowder/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6.git
18:26 ugexe you have to pay close attention to each step - what you need to do is change the "version" in your meta to 0.1.2 and change the source-url to https://github.com/tbrowder/Net-IP-Lite-Perl6/archive/0.1.2.tar.gz (even though this url does not exist yet). then push this change to github, followed by tagging that commit as release "0.1.2" (which creates the .tar.gz url that did not exist before linked in
18:26 ugexe META6.json). then update the ecosystem list to point at the proper META6.json commit
18:33 ugexe also it might be worth mentioning you can also replace .tar.gz with .zip, which most windows versions can handle by default (but not .tar.gz without installing additional tools)
21:27 tbrowder .tell ugexe that helps, plus i've been fumble fingering on a tablet while hurricane evacuees (son and family) are crowding my home for a few days

22:19 tbrowder .tell ugexe i hope it wrks this time. note it would be helpful to see my errors in the ecosystem log, otherwise the user is in the dark a bit
22:28 tbrowder at least i can wget the correct release tar ball, now, so there is hope!!
