I can help with that. I did file one and get it fixed already.

I tried with spaces instead and got No package "foo bar" found. foo, bar
doesn't work either. Maybe you can support these variants or add a hint
next to the text box that multiple packages with comma and no spaces
between them is supported. Also it says "create an archive of a specific
package" which suggests that multiple packages are not supported.

Users would have to know to do that. I am not sure the audience you are
targeting would be aware of this.
