I'm uploading a Magento 1 extension to the Marketplace and I get the following error.

The archive "Mage1.tgz" does not follow Magento conventions.

I included the "package.xml" file in the root of my directory and got that error.

It was possible to get the approval from Magento and actually have the extension published if I upload a .tgz with only the package.xml file inside, but I'm never asked for the actual code of my extension.

What is it supposed to be inside the package .tgz file?
