Ah, just realized I knew the answer for this bit:

For "uploading"/"creating" new items, we have the S3-like API, which you
can find documentation regarding here: http://archive.org/help/abouts3.txt

We also have a python module and binary that makes it super easy - `pip
install internetarchive` will put the swiss army knife tool `ia` into your
path for interacting with us, and is generally the easiest way to get "up
and running" with both our s3 and our JSON(and JSONPatch for updating
metadata) APIs
