Need HELP!!!

I tried to do the CDV replacement today. I had a lot of difficulty getting everything reconnected, and a lot of fluid leaked out in the process. I had topped off the brake fluid reservior before starting. Due to the messy CDV replacement, I assumed there was air in the line. I started to bleed the line from the bleeder valve (2 person method). During the first few rounds of open/clutch/close/release, some fluid came out, but the pedal never went limp or had to be pulled back up as expected. After a few more rounds, the clutch pedal would still spring back up, but there was very little resistance when being pressed. We repeated this cycle at least 20 times. No change.

Obviously something is wrong, or more likely, something I did is wrong. Can anybody help me figure it out? What can I do to fix it?
