The <directory> tags for dir.xiph.org are needed (they may be commented 
out). Then you need to make your stream public which is usually a flag 
set in the source client.

BTW You may of already set the above correctly because the url you 
provided indicates that the <hostname> setting is wrong, it currently 
says localhost which is not really a valid name/IP for other internet 
users to use so the stream directory server will send a message back to 
you for that which you can see in your error log.
