Zip files issues

When .zip files exist in a repository, the Download feature will provide you with a .zip of the repository that will not open. After spending the entire day trying to figure out what was causing the zip to become corrupt, I discovered that removing all .zip files from our repository fixed the problem.

    This is likely a bug for Git, rather than the archive plugin. The archive plugin forks git archive to produce the zip file, so if the resulting zip is invalid it's because Git itself didn't create it correctly.

    With that said, I've seen some messages on the Git mailing list which imply this issue may be fixed in newer versions of Git. You may want to try upgrading.
