Okay. Now that we're settled, here's the problems:

has version 0.1 in it. Shouldn't that be 0.2?

has Stable Tag 0.1 in it. Also should be 0.2.

Making a new tag = making a new version. If you didn't make a new
version, then you shouldn't have made a new tag directory.

Your checkin problems are straight username/password issues.
