I guess that is a posh way of confirming that there is no support for hosting any build artifacts. The fact that there is an action to create a zip file does not bring much value, we were already able to do the same using curl or whatever tool we wanted.
Still, ability to browse build artifacts, like html reports is a very basic functionality for any CI/CD tool. A zip file is anything but user friendly, as it would require user to download the file, unzip it in order to look at it. Should I also mention that sharing links to a report now becomes sharing links to a zip file… hmm. I doubt many people would find “zip” approach as being practical, unless you really produce binaries.
