XCode crashes while uploading to app store.

I have submitted 3-4 pre-release builds today - all with no problem. Now, when I submit the app via XCode, the archive is created, validated, and signed, and starts the upload process. Then, XCode inexplicably crashes.

The first 5 or six times, I thought it was something I did or something wrong with the package. I upgraded XCode to 6.3.2 (the latest), but still nojoy.

I grabbed my 2011 Macbook air (underpowered for XCode), did a FRESH install of XCode, copied over the certificates and the source code, re-compiled, validated, submitted, and... CRASH!

Is this a code problem? XCode problem? Or is Apple having a malfunction today?

From the crash report,it looks like this isn't my problem... or it is getting bad data back from the server...

Have you tried uploading the app directly without xcode (using application loader for example)?

Here is a youtube video with the steps, though I haven't tried them personally. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWCDks75hg8

It looks like it uses an alternate upload flow in xcode.

Apparently you can also download Application Loader directly from http://itunesconnect.apple.com. Click on "Resources and Help" and you'll find a .dmg download for it as well as a user guide and other resources.
