What didn't work well with zip.exe

rem Info-ZIP zip seems to be broken on Windows.
rem It always writes to zip.zip and treats the zipfile argument as one
rem of the files to go in it.
rem zip -9 -r %2-bin-i386 emacs-%1/BUGS emacs-%1/COPYING emacs-%1/README

8. Test the resulting zip files.
What tests did you usually run?
Test that the unpacked Emacs runs, along with the other exes in the bin directory, and check that the number of files in the zip file is in the same ballpark as the previous version.

It also requires to register a GPG signature, doesn't it?
