Floppy disk Uploading to Aminet

Hey folks

I'm after some help in uploading a file to Aminet in case anyone has had any success with this recently. I'm uploading an update to my existing TextEngine app but despite a few tries it never appears on the Aminet server.

Steps I've tried are:

ftp aminet.net or ftp main.aminet.net
username: anonymous
password: my email address
cd new
put TextEngine_MorphOS.lha
put TextEngine_MorphOS.readme

Weeks have passed and the files have not appeared. Can anyone spot what might be wrong? Also for completeness below is my readme file as I know the format can be critical:

Short:        Word processor with spelling checker
Author:       Nicholas Harvey
Uploader:     Nicholas Harvey
Type:         text/edit
Version:      5.3
Architecture: m68k-amigaos >= 2.0.4; ppc-morphos

This is a bug-fix update to allow TextEngine to run on Morphos. This version 
has the same functionality as TextEngine 5.2 but with a tweak made to the 
GadToolsBox code to allow the GUI to open on MorphOS. If you wish to run 
TextEngine on AmigaOS then please use version 5.2 for maximum compatability.

This version has been tested on MorphOS 3.10 only.

Did you check http://wiki.aminet.net/Uploading_instructions already? Can you see your upload in directory "new"? If yes you should contact the Aminet team at http://wiki.aminet.net/Contact . If not something went wrong with your upload.

Doesn't uploader needs a valid e-mail address? It gets stripped before putting it on Aminet the docs say and last time I didn't do that it didn't show on Aminet. With my full address there it did.

Thanks daxb & Hedeon. It sounds like adding an email address to the readme is the likely issue here.
