Second that! Note that you have a typo on line 45: it should be mybundle.itmsp, not .itsmp.

Hello,
Any idea how to add the metadata also?
Thanks!

I have Xcode 6.3.2 and location for iTMSTransporter is different. Now it's:

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Applications/Application\ Loader.app/Contents/itms/bin/iTMSTransporter

So, line 47 could be changed accordingly.

Is there a way to add metadata for uploading your app with debug symbols?

Any idea how software_assets fits into the new software5.4 specification? There is now package/software/software_metadata at the root.
