"Npm publish" hangs and never finishes

What I Wanted to Do

I was trying to publish a package to npmjs.

What Happened Instead

I ran npm publish --tag=dev in my terminal and it sits there and never does anything nor does the progress bar change.

Reproduction Steps

Run npm publish --tag=dev


No logfile generated.
