Congrats on the release.

Cool!  This used to not be the case, but I guess newer versions support it.
Would you be willing to update the wiki instructions for Fossil?

zip files are supported, just like tarballs but there was a bug in
Henrietta-cache which caused it to fail on zip files when the tempdir
was mounted on a different filesystem than the final cache dir, but it
should work now.  If it still won't work, let me know and I'll look into it.
