Although document says "The --repository or -r option lets you specify a PyPI server different from the default", if there is no URL specified in ``.pypirc`` it will display "ValueError: <URL> not found in .pypirc".

This behavior could be confirmed on Windows.

I think there are two correction methods.
One is to fix it so that we can specify any URL regardless of the setting of .pypirc.
The other is to write in the document that "-r option can specify server name or URL in .pypirc".
