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.

Thank you.
