I am the maintainer for the Rigroup package. Based on the e-mail
below, I found and fixed a warning (spurious right brace) in the
manual for my package under the new parser.
It has been a number of years since I last revised the package and I
am not sure where and how to upload it. I looked on the "developer"
page but did not see anything that said where to upload revised
Sorry for the inconvenience but could someone please direct me to
where I find the instructions for uploading revised packages.
