When `"private": false`, add `--access public`

Recently, npm registry prevents me from publishing new packages without --access public flag even when "private": false is in package.json. I find this needlessly inconvenient as I already explicitly implying public access through "private": false. So I ask to make an exception.


This was a result of a bug in an update of our package publishing code. We’ve rolled out a fix for this. Sorry for the trouble!
