It shouldn't have been network problem or PC crash because the ZIP file
was not broken technically, it "just" didn't contain anything apart the
readme.rev file. I assume that you add this file in another ZIP run (since
the basic ZIP file is created by the make process), so maybe you could
just check whether the ZIP file already existed before you run the ZIP
command for adding readme.rev?
