What is the necessary structure of an archive package for it to function properly as a blueprint?
I notice that when I add a new blueprint it does not initially appear in the list of options. I have to go back in the wizard and come to the list a second time for a new blueprint to appear as an option.

Blueprints can be a folder or zip. The Blueprint folder would contain a WordPress Installation and any plugins or themes you would like. You can also edit the wp-config.php file and add defines and change the database table prefix.
With the Premium version you can create a site, set the permlanks add users, add plugins and activate, etc. Then export the website into the blueprints folder and it will that as the template.
Yes after you create a Blueprint you would normally want to stop and restart the web and database services(first selection on the main menu) for DesktopServer to add your blueprint to the list
We hope you find this information helpful.

Should the SQL dump be located at the blueprint folder root?
What I was noticing with the blueprints not showing up was following a server restart. A blueprint folder had been added before DesktopServer was even opened. I didn’t have to restart for the list to refresh; I just moved back and forward again in the setup wizard. This is with the Mac version.
