My guess would be to use Stack to set up your environment, and then do 
something like "stack exec -- cabal upload --documentation", but I 
haven't tried that.

I tried that button when I was having trouble with documentation, and it 
didn't work for me.

If you (or anyone else out there) would like me to upload docs for you, 
I'd be happy to do so.  Just add me to your package's maintainer group.  
I've already done this for the SFML package:


and I'd be happy to do it with other packages, at least until I get 
swamped with requests.  I think having up-to-date documentation on 
Hackage is really important, and I'm happy to help out to achieve this goal.
