           Summary: Problem with Microsoft zip extractor and Kepler zip
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0beta1
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: installer
        AssignedTo: higgins at nceas.ucsb.edu
        ReportedBy: higgins at nceas.ucsb.edu
         QAContact: kepler-dev at ecoinformatics.org

The nightly build of Kepler creates a nightly zip file that contains all the
code needed to run kepler from a shell/batch file. The zip file is quite large
(~100MB). WinZip handles extraction of the zipped files nicely, but if one uses
Microsoft's built in zip extractor, IT TAKES FOREVER (if it works at all!). The
Microsoft zip extractor does seem to work OK for smaller zip files.

Note: This is not a bug in Kepler, but in MS unzip. Mentioned here primarily as
a recond of this known problem.
