I still have the zip file that I uploaded to CTAN. The file was named 
correctly. However the path in the tds.zip was incorrect (it was under 
tex/xelatex/ instead of tex/xelatex/arabxetex/) and Karl fixed it after 
informing me. Probably he introduced the typo when he corrected the path 
inside the tds.zip. No offense taken, it would not have happened if I 
had provided a correct tds.zip in the first place :)
