My guess is that you didn't create the tar file correctly.  If you  
are in the directory containing the srfi2 directory, then you should  

    tar cf srfi2-v1_0_0.tar srfi2/v1.0.0

You probably forgot to put the /v1.0.0 at the end.

A much simpler approach is to use snowman to upload your package with  
the command

   snowman upload srfi2
